    Moqueca is not a soup and with caipirinha? Would be the same as eating chicken and waffles drinking bourbon . 🤦‍♂️

    It is not a soup. Be sure of it. It is almost an offense to call it brazilian soup.

  12. Andy

  13. Toli veira

    Amazing caipirinha and the moqueca looks so yummy👏👏 . Your friend remind me Aaliyah. Xoxo from 🇧🇷

    The only reason it isn’t sustainable is because of humans. Some countries have decided to make it profitable to where companies use it in processed foods and for clothing. And some misuse it as source for fuel in other countries. When really the palm tree is from west and south West Africa and used for food and as Bahia Salvador is mainly people of African descendants that’s why they use it in their food. It’s really a shame how as humans we destroy our planet by misusing our natural resources for profit. 🤷🏽‍♀️

    It's interesting that Brazilians still cook with palm oil like their Yoruba ancestors.

  18. john e Lawler

    2nd time of trying this & it was better than the first, this time I used Dende oil & it did make a difference so I feel suitably guilty,

  20. john e Lawler

    I am eating this as I write & I love it I used Spanish olive oil instead of Dende & it taste lovely

  21. Natalia Spinelli

    This recipe turned out delicious! I added shrimp at the end. One poblano pepper. Needed extra liquid. I used extra tomatoes. Lots of the red palm oil.

  22. john e Lawler

    his will be Sunday's dinner that's 11/4 /2020

  23. john e Lawler

    this completes my trinity of delight, Brazilian music, Caipirinha & this, thank you, you have made an old Englishman happy lol

  24. Kayo Pierre Holland

    The dendê palm oil is the worst fat you can find, it a true artery clogger. Olive oil is much tastier in this recipe! Also, moqueca is not soup, is stew.

    Your cohost is a beauty.

  26. Koren Douglas

    Can you do a video on Pap na chapa???

  27. Rodrigo Santos Valeriano

    Cod is actually very very in Brazil because of Portuguese influence, is a tradition on the easter week, specially on friday because fish is the only meat admited on thay day. But it's true, cod is not used on moqueca, it just doesn't work.

  28. marc chesley

    caçaca has the taste and smell of tequila but goes down like a top shelf vodka! it kinda of reminds you of a mojito without bacardi and mint leaf! Now that I think a mint leaf would be perfect with this drink

  29. Long Live Palestine

    Two Beautiful women cooking, what a treat for the viewers and international food lovers! Good job 😊

  32. Roberta Leal

    Não é uma sopa, é pra ser comido com arroz ou pirão


    The video and representatives is eye candy

    As a brazilian I did not like this recipe. I appreciate your effort, but this is not a good looking moqueca. I do not even know if I can call this "moqueca". First, you forgot an essential ingredients, the anatto (urucum or colorau in Portuguese). The cilantro and the palm oil must go in the end (because they lose the taste). Boiled eggs should be added also, and red pepper (although not essential). This dish should not have black pepper or cumin. If you want to stir-fry some onions and garlic you should do it with olive oil (and by the way that was way too much garlic). Furthermore, in the moqueca it is essential that the vegetables, specially the tomato, start cooking along with the fish. Fish cooks very fast and so the tomato. Therefore, you dont want to over cook the tomato or the onions, as they are part of the dish. This reminds me that you should not use a hard fish such as cod. And talking about tomato, it was sad to see tomato sauce being added to the broth that should be light and bring up all the flavors of the dish. Another reason you do not want to use tomato sauce is because you are gonna use the broth to prepare the pirão (which is the broth thickened with yuka or cassava flour) as a side for the dish.

    Que delicia!

    Nobody ever mentions the impacts of consuming beef and its relation to devastation of rainforests. But palm oil should be the culprit. Oh please. Besides, moqueca is not a soup, pirao is not porridge and you don't use tomato sauce on the moqueca.

    Palm oil = azeite de dende, se usa muito na cozinha tailandesa.
