Serves 3-4

The perfect comfort food, this recipe is my take on a classic Brazilian dish that I grew up eating and have always adored. In Portuguese, it is called "Camarao na Moranga" and we traditionally have it with plain rice. I hope you love it as much as I do.


  • - 2 small pumpkins or any gourd/squash of your choice
  • - 300g raw king prawns
