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!
I have made this literally dozens of times since I first found this recipe! I don’t really bother layering the ingredients but it stills turns out great each time. I’ve had moqueca in Brazil, and this is isn’t the same, it is such a DELICIOUS recipe!!
The taste definitely improved on the second day, wow! It was already great on the first day, but I was surised how good it was a day later! Definitely wait a day to eat it, if you can.
It was excellent! My son loved it! He says better then ordering from a restaurant! Thank you! Will definitely make this again and again….!
I’m so glad you and your son liked it Emily!
Reduced cumin to 2 tsp instead of 2.5 tsp as I didn’t want an overwhelming cumin taste. Followed the 2-hr marinating time. I sauteed the veggies first & let them cook until soft. Used light coconut milk as it’s the only one I had in my pantry & it was still good. Only added salmon towards the last 12mins as I didn’t want it overcooked as was the concern of another reviewer. Still turned out great even with only 25mins cooking time.
Yummy! We made extra salmon in the marinade which we cooked up in the frying pan for the kids. That was delicious on its own. The soup is as good as we had in Brazil…so it’s really 2 recipes in one
This is an incredible easily delicious recipe. I replaced the cilantro with spinach because I don’t like cilantro. Still came out delicious!
Perfect! Easy! Delicious!
Thank you . It was amazing!!! I didn’t change anything except for sautéing the onions and capsicums a little bit. My whole family kept going back for more, will definitely make it again and again and again!
I’m so glad you liked it Harpreet!
The soup was amazing but the fish was far too tough from cooking so long. Such a disappointment. May try again but only adding the fish in the last few minutes.
What a wonderful dish! I omitted the cilantro (we just don’t do it in this house) and had it with some pineapple rice with chili flakes and a nice Sauvignon Blanc. I will absolutely make this recipe again!
