  1. Separate all ingredients and utensils for the recipe.
  2. The ideal fish for making moqueca are firm, so they do not fall apart during cooking and can be fillets or slices.

  4. Wash and peel the garlic and chop it.
  5. Wash and peel the onion and cut it into slices.

  7. Wash the peppers, remove the seeds and white parts and cut them into strips of approximately 0.5 cm

  9. Wash and dry the coriander, parsley and spring onion, chop them and set aside on absorbent paper.
  10. Pass the cassava flour through a sieve.

Fish stew:

  1. In a deep frying pan or skillet, add the olive oil and half the palm oil, spreading it around to cover the entire bottom.
  2. Distribute the tomato slices and season with a little salt and pepper.
  3. Place the onion and peppers on top, interspersing the colors, and season again with salt and pepper.
  4. Spread the garlic, a little coriander, parsley, chives and chilli.
  5. Arrange the seasoned fish fillets.
  6. Drizzle with coconut milk and add remaining palm oil.
  7. Top with the remaining coriander, parsley and chives.
  8. Cook over medium heat, covered, for about 15 minutes or until the fish is cooked, shaking the pan well from time to time to prevent the moqueca from sticking to the bottom.

Farofa with lemon:

  1. While the moqueca is cooking, melt the butter in another pan.
  2. Add the flour and season with salt.
  3. Toast the farofa, stirring constantly to prevent it from burning, until it is crispy.
