Mocequa the brazilian hangover dish
comments from Marusia of Bahia . . .
2 pieces of fish to a person
You can estimate the quantities of other ingredients. I will offer you the quantities for 1 portion . . .
1 medium onion sliced
2 diced fresh tomatoes
chopped parsley to taste
cilantro leaves to taste
3 cloves fresh garlic
1 sweet pepper cut into wheels
1/2 cup coconut milk
3 tablespoons olive oil
juice of 1 lemon
2 pimentas de cheiro (aromatic pimentos)
1/2 cup dend oil
white rice, dend farofa or rice of hauss as a side dish!!! (1 cup cooked
Moqueca made with meat: uses dried meat that must be soaked for 12 hours before cooking to reconsitute it.
Moqueca made with eggs: You put first all the spices and coconut milk and dend oil into a heated frying pan, then add the eggs. No meat or fish. Sometimes, a bit of smoked shrimp. This kind of
moqueca is very private, not appropriateto offer guests because it's poor moqueca. It means you don't have anything better to eat this day.
And eat everything with the Gal COsta CD Mina d'gua do meu canto sound.!!! Although Phillip might prefer the music of Marisa Monte, heavily influenced by Gal Costa, or Zelia Duncan, Marusia
insists that Gal and Elis Regina are the best! She asks "Do you know Caetano's Cime? It's lovely and Gal sings in this CD".
Mocequa comments from Dani of Bahia . . .
Most of time Moqueca is made with seafood. But we have also a plate named "Roupa Velha" (old cloth), that is made with meat slightly spoiled. It's a Moqueca of spoiled meat :)))))
Moqueca must be made with dend oil and cocnut milk. Without dende oil we would call it ensopada (like a soup). And only on the interior of Bahia you will see people using coriander seed.
in Salvador we only use the leaves (cilantro). Finally: Condensed tomato? That's terrible. Never do such a thing! :))))))))) Use only natural things, not industrialized.
