A vibrant fish stew that is made with your local seafood, coconut milk, and peppers. Serve with lime juice and rice for a gorgeous meal.
The Brazilian Moqueca Fish Soup is a customary seafood cuisine that originated in the northeastern states of Bahia and Espírito Santo. It is a savory stew prepared with fish, shrimp, or a blend of both, which is cooked in a sauce based on coconut milk and paprika.
The dish is famous for its vivid hues and flavor, imparted by ingredients like garlic, onions, bell peppers, cilantro, and paprika among other delicious things…
But if you don’t have time to jump on a jetplane to the Amazon jungle or the beaches of Rio, you can at least get a delicious taste of the home of The Canaries (the Brazilian National Soccer Team) with this fabulous soup.
