This is excellent! We love serving this to guests as it tastes like you slaved over it all day but it is the easiest meal to make allowing you time to spend with your guests. Thanks!! We added 1.5-2 pounds of eggplant to have more veggies and serve over rice -#love.
Great idea to add eggplant, Rebecca, thanks for sharing!
We order this at a local restaurant named Moqueca. It’s astonishing how similar this recipe is to their recipe! Excellent. I added 8 oz. tomato sauce when I added the coconut milk since I’m sure the restaurant does that. I also added a teaspoon of smoked paprika and 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper. This is traditionally served with a hot chili oil on the side and helps the flavors pop. Served it over white rice and with buttered, warm crusty bread to soak up those juices. Next time I’ll add some crab legs or shrimp in addition to the fish. This is impressive enough to make for guests and it’s quick. Obrigada!
OMG! this is SO yummy lol
So easy and delicious. I’ve added shrimp and scallops too and it’s always amazing.
Everything turned out great. Made a few modifications but stuck mostly to directions. Very easy and delicious.
Amazing! I’m addicted and it is a weekly staple in my meal planning. I needed a creative way to give my toddler fish 3x’s a week and we both love this recipe! I add a can of coconut cream for extra creaminess and add jumbo shrimp. I alternate between frozen salmon and frozen low mercury white fish (pollock or cod). This is quick and easy to prepare & the marinade is incredible. This is an all time fav!! THANK YOU
5th time making it!!! The korean in-laws think im Gordon Ramsey :)
This was delicious! A great recipe and very easy. If you do a big batch, are you able to freeze it to use at a later date?
Hi Alaina, I have some frozen in my freezer right now! I love to make a big batch and freeze portions in freezer bags. The soup defrosts beautifully.
This was fabulous. I made it exactly as to your instructions.
Great, Sandi, I’m so glad you like the stew!
Loved it! So easy and tasty. A couple of things I did differently: 1) I didn’t have as much salmon as I thought so I added prawns. Turned out great as they also absorbed the spices.2) I only marinaded 1 1/2 hours as I am afraid that the acid in the lime juice would cook the fish if it marinaded much longer, and turn it into cerviche. 3) I like an extra kick, especially when cooking with coconut milk, and since this is a Brazilian dish and their cuisine has many African influences I used the African spice berbere to spice it up. I also added white pepper. The flavor of the sauce really jumped out!
Again, great recipe. Thanks for sharing.
Sounds yummy but I’m going to try to half the recipe since it’s only for one person who doesn’t like leftovers and it sounds like it does not freeze well. I was wondering if I should stir the coconut milk to mix in the solid part with the liquid before I add half the can to the top of the meal. Or if I should just add half of the liquid and then half of the solid that’s on top In the milk can? Thanks for the recipe
Hi Connie, I usually mix the solid with the liquid part first, before adding to the soup.
Excellent!! I made it according to your recipe and it turned out wonderful….
So easy to prepare! My family loved it. It was tasty and satisfying I used a yellow and red pepper because that is all I had. I started it on the stove but then placed the oven at 325 for 30 minutes.
Delicious. Thanks for the recipe :)
I made this recipie tonight for my husband and my 2 young girls and it was devoured by everyone! Super delicious.. I have to say I am a little mortified by the amount of people saying to use palm oil! Palm oil has been and continues to be a major driver of deforestation of some of the world’s most biodiverse forests, destroying the habitat of already endangered species like the Orangutan, pygmy elephant and Sumatran rhino. My only comment would be don’t use the palm oil, it doesn’t need It and is delicious without out!
Absolutely fantastic! As I’m isolating at home due to cancer and covid I depend on grocery deliveries. I just happened to have frozen salmon filets and the rest of the ingredients on hand. The stew was heartwarming. If I can’t get salmon I think marinating any fish or white meat would be equally delicious. Adding a new recipe to keep my palette from getting bored is really appreciated. Thank you so much!
Hi Tina, I’m so glad you liked the salmon stew! Wishing you a full and speedy recovery.
Delicious! I made small tweaks according to what I had on hand, including canned diced tomatoes instead of fresh. This will be a staple. I did find it a bit rich in a good way, but I lighten it up mixing in steamed garlic broccoli when I serve it. Next time I will double the veggies and again add broccoli since it holds the juices so well.
So fast to put together, even with marinating. I didn’t have 2 hours to marinate, so 45 minutes was about all I could do after stumbling on this recipe. It was a hit with my family and a different way to eat salmon since we eat it twice a week. Will definitely make again!
Oh my god!!!!! I made this in instapot. I layered it exact same way. Only added pinches of red chilli for taste … it was super delicious! Definitely making it to impress the in laws!
Yay! Great to know!
How long did you put it in the instapot?
May I ask how long you cooked it in the instapot? Sounds great!
