Eating Bahia: Moqueca

Moqueca by Rude Nugget

We are Brazilophiles here at ETW, and one of our favorite parts of Brazil is Bahia, a state in the Northeast. Our goal is to get there by next summer, but in the meantime we will cook up some Bahian flavors here in the Windy City. Seafood, coconut milk and palm oil (dende) are all staples of Bahian cuisine – a dish that combines them all is Moqueca, a well-beloved Bahian fish stew. I’ve found a few recipes for Moqueca recently, includeing one on the ever-reliable Simply Recipes. Another version comes from Global Gourmet.
