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

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 pepper, 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.
