Brazilian Lime Fish Stew

Brazilian.Limes's picture
“This is one of my favourite fish dishes - a wonderful combination of Brazilian ingredients where the flavours work perfectly together. The lime added at the end gives it a wonderful zesty finish and really lifts the dish. You can use any type of fish but I’ve used salmon for its lovely pinkness, meaty monkfish and hake or cod, which gives it a nice flakiness. Mussels and prawns would work well too. A real celebration of seafood!” – Marcello Tully
