Moqueca de Peixe Baiana

Although Brazilians like to eat a lot of meat, fish is one of the country's most popular dishes. Samba, sun, sand and sea: a spirited spicy fish stew!


Moqueca is a traditional dish in Brazil that mixes African with local cuisine. The most famous version is the "Moqueca Baiana". This is a fish stew made with fish fillets, coconut milk, dende oil and tomatoes. So if you love a spicy cuisine and fish, this is the dish for you.


In this sense, I wish them a lot of fun while cooking and of course a good appetite!
