What's Cooking? Brazilian Moqueca Onda Boa Style

This recipe is a favorite on board. It is a kind of fish stew, and the original comes from the North East of Brazil (Bahia). Some adaptations have been made, and it continues to taste fantastic (plus it is also treat for the eyes....)

* Ingredients (for two)

- 1 kg of fresh fish ( sliced, not fillets)
- 3  tomatoes (cut in slices)
- 1 union (cut in thin slices)
- 2 Paprika's (cut in slices, a red one and a green one)
- Fresh coriander (not a must, but it sure tastes great)
- palm oil (nice, and intense yellow cooking oil)
- coconut milk
- olive oil
- lime juice
- salt
- pepper

* Preparation

- put some palm oil and olive oil in a pan large enough to hold all ingredients (we use a wok frying pan....) and once the oil gets hot, stir fry the unions,and once they are getting fried (they get really yellow because of the palm oil), then add the paprika's and let it simmer for a while, then add the tomatoes, some salt and pepper, and let it continue to simmer...

- put the slices of fish in a bowl, and add the lime juice, some salt and pepper as well...

- once the union, paprika's and tomatoes are well under way... add some coconut milk (200 ml) and mix.. then place the slices of fish on top of it all and add some freshly cut coriander and again let it simmer.... Put a lid on the frying pan (wok).. don't stir the fish, as that will not be necessary. In abt 15 min it will be all good and ready to eat. You can serve with white rice...

Hope you like it.... Please let us know....
