Brazilian Seafood Stew Recipe

Serves/Makes: 6


  • 1/2 pound fresh calamari (squid)
  • 1/2 pound cooked clam meat
  • 1/2 pound shelled cooked prawns (shrimps)
  • 1/2 pound shelled cooked mussels
  • 1 pound fresh white fish

  • 8 ounces coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons freshly chopped coriander

How to cook Brazilian Seafood Stew:
  • Cut the fish into 1-inch cubes (or slightly larger) and the squid into small pieces. Place both in a bowl together with some salt and the lemon juice. Mix to coat well and set aside to marinate for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, place the tomatoes, onions, cilantro, minced garlic and salt in a food processor or blender and process to a coarse purée.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan, add the puree and cook, stirring, for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the fish and squid together with any marinade and cook gently for 10 minutes, stirring from time to time.
  • Add the prawns, clams, mussels and coconut milk, mix well and simmer gently for a further 15 minutes stirring from time to time and adding a little water if necessary (it should be the consistency of a soup).
  • Adjust the seasoning and serve immediately with rice.
