This Brazilian fish stew is warming, delicious and easy to make. It is a simplified version of a common Brazilian dish, and easy enough for weeknights. You can use salmon in place of tilapia for a heartier fish flavour. Serve with hot rice.
Fabulous stew. I would recommend a few tweaks: The listed amount of bell peppers is a bit much. Half the amount of bell peppers is more than enough. I'd also do half red, half yellow bell peppers for added color. As well, I'd recommend a fish that is more firm/less flaky than tilapia. I used cod and it turned out great. Finally, a pinch of chili flakes for an extra bit of zing. - 16 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe was excellent. It was relatively easy to make and didn't take much time. I used more than the recommended lime which I would suggest. This fish stew could have as easily passed as a Thai recipe. If you like Thai food try this dish. I am also going to make this again substituting the fish with shrimp or chicken. - 02 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I'm from Brazil, and this is one of my fave dishes. I personally don't use garlic on fishes... It kind of is a bit "too much". Also, that amount of pepper is used by Northern people more than at other parts of the country., but if you like it... - 16 Oct 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
