#FishFridayFoodies ~ Moqueca (Brazilian Fish Stew)

Welcome to Fish Friday Foodies - today we're taking an international trip! See all pf the tasty international fish dishes being shared today:
This soup has a smoky paprika flavor and is chock full of tender vegetables and flaky and flavorful fish. I chose halibut. It comes together in a snap! Serve over rice.

The original recipe also suggests a healthy serving of fresh cilantro which I omitted for personal preference. 

Moqueca from Simply Recipes

2 pounds of fillets of firm white fish such as halibut, swordfish, or cod
3 cloves garlic, minced
4 tablespoons lemon juice
Freshly ground black pepper
Extra virgin olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, chopped or sliced
1 red bell pepper, seeded, de-stemmed, chopped
2 cups chopped tomatoes
1 tablespoon paprika (Hungarian sweet)
Pinch red pepper flakes (optional)
1 14-ounce can coconut milk

  1. Place fish fillets in a bowl with garlic, lemon juice, and 1 tsp salt - set aside.
  2. Saute the onions and peppers in a large soup pot - using a tablespoon or two of olive oil (add more as needed). Cook 10-15 minutes until they reach your desired tenderness.
  3. Add in the tomatoes and coconut milk.
  4. Lay fillets on top - cover and simmer over medium heat until fish is tender and cooked through.
  5. Serve over rice.
