Brazilian Fish Stew (Moqueca Baiana)

“With a large coastline, Bahia offers fish and seafood in abundance. If you visit a market in the biggest city in Bahia, Salvador, you will find bags of prepared fish and seafood ready to be marinated in lime. This is the beginning of moqueca. Add to this tomatoes, pepper, coriander, palm oil and coconut milk. Moqueca is more than a fish stew – it is also a marker of identity. There are two competing versions of moqueca in Brazil. Moqueca baiana from Bahia and moqueca capixaba from Espírito Santo. The Bahia version differs by using coconut milk and red palm oil and showcases its African heritage.”

Bon appetit!!
