Moqueca de Peixe4.3/5 (BASED ON 478 reviews)
Here's a Brazilian recipe that's hugely popular amongst those that live by the coast. While the key ingredient is the freshest of fish, the huge flavour is added through the jalapenos, cumin seeds and turmeric root among other spices which we have pounded into a fragrant paste. This is what brings a warm, spicy and sweet flavour to the coconut milk while the aromatic garnish completes the dish by providing a lovely texture with desiccated coconut and dried red chilli.

Heat a little oil in a large pan over medium heat and fry the peppers and onion for 2 mins.
Stir in the GARLIC & COCONUT paste.
Add the Brazilian flavours
Stir in the BRAZILIAN PASTE and the coconut milk and then let it simmer for 5 mins.
Add the tomatoes and cook for 3 more mins.
Stir in the MOQUECA GARNISH and then add the cod fish pieces to the pan and gently stir to submerge them in the sauce. Leave to cook on a medium-low heat for 5 mins or until the fish is cooked through and easily flakes apart.
