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.

Absolutely my new favourite. Perfect spices for fish...nice wee kick at the end but not overpowering. I added sweet corn and asparagus and had with mashed potatoes to soak up the sauce. Already on my list for next box.

Go easy on the rice. Maybe use half as much as stated in recipe. It’s proper spicy but well nice- enjoy!!

brian - Oct 27, 2019

Lively with fresh haddock

Sharlene - Oct 25, 2019

Really tasty

Stefani - Oct 25, 2019

Enjoyed this with rice but if it was just the Moqueca on its own, I wouldn’t know whether to treat it as a soup or not. It was a pleasant spice to it. Next time I’d probably use shrimp instead of Cod though.

Dan - Oct 24, 2019


Susie - Oct 23, 2019

This was nice with sea bass n Greek yogurt enjoyed it

Alexandria - Oct 23, 2019

Spicy, tasty and easy to make. Made it with cod - yummy! Would definitely order again.

Rachael - Oct 23, 2019

Love it, made with cod and it was perfect. Added a little extra coconut milk as it was quite spicy. Even my 2 year old loved it
