Bahian Brasilian Fish Stew, Decorated With Boiled Eggs (Moqueca
45 mins (prep 15, cooking 30)
19 ingredients
4-6 servings
Brazil's Famous Bahian Fish Dish (Moqueca de Peixa Baiana: (moo-KAY-ka Jhee PAY-shah) garnished with chopped Cilantro and Hard-Boiled Egg Wedges. Just loving my Brasilian lineage and the foods of my culture, this is an homage to Bahia and to Brasil. Saute and simmer all the other ingredients as long as you like, until tender, but Do NOT ADD the fish until 5-8 minutes before serving depending on the thickness if the fish. That said, you can add a piece or two to the saute for added flavor. I also use two tablespoons of Fish Sauce. This is to be ideally cooked very slowly so that the flavors can blend thoroughly. I'm going to try cooking in a slow cooker on low for 6 hours and then adding the fish JUST prior to serving. Serve over white rice, with lime wedges. Side dishes: sauteed collards or spinach and garlic and also cold orange slices.
