It was raining and windy off and on today so indoor cooking it was. Had some peppers , onions and shrimp to use so settled on Brazilian Moqueca. A rich spicy broth featuring tomato, clam juice and coconut milk with peppers , onions, shrimp, cod and spices. Topped when serving with cilantro and a squeeze of lime. Peppers are a blend of mild and some hot to give it a nice little kick. I’ll post up a recipe tomorrow when I get my notes written up. First up melting some red palm oil.Next adding on the peppers and onions. I had some hatch peppers to use up and also some jalapeños to give it a kick.Once the peppers and onions were softened I added the rest of the broth ingredients which include diced tomatoes, tomato paste, coconut milk, coconut cream, clam juice and a little fish sauce along with spices including cumin, paprika , salt and some hot pepper powderAfter simmering to thicken some I added in the cod and shrimp that had marinated a half hour or so I’m like juice and salt.All finished up and hit with some cilantro and lime juice.That’s a wrap. This was my first go at moqueca and overall it was very tasty. Next time I’ll likely cut back the tomato paste a bit so it’s a little more coconut forward. Thanks for looking.
