Brazilians have been making Moqueca for at least 300 years. Tasting this recipe will make you understand why!

80ml lime juice

1 red onion, thinly sliced

1 green and 1 red capsicum, thinly sliced

3 garlic cloves, finely chopped

2 small red chillies, finely chopped

400g can chopped tomatoes

270ml can coconut milk

300g king prawns



1. Marinate the white fish for 30 minutes in a large bowl with the lime juice and a pinch of salt.

2. In the meantime, heat 2 tbsp of olive oil and gently fry the onion for a few minutes until soft.

3. Add the capsicums, chilli and garlic and lightly fry for a further 5 minutes.

4. Stir in the stock, coconut milk and tomatoes. 

5. Bring to the boil and then simmer for around 20-30 minutes, until the sauce has slightly thickened.

6. Add the prawns and fish, cooking for around 8-10 minutes until fish is cooked through.

7. Serve with a garnish of fresh coriander and rice.
