Moqueca is a traditional Brazilian soup with seafood and / or fish, influenced by several culinary cultures, mainly Brazilian and Portuguese.
There are two main varieties of this dish and a lot of modern interpretations. But in any of them the basis remains unshakable - tomatoes, bell peppers, onions and the sea component - seafood or white fish, or even better their combination.
Moqueca Capixaba is a more delicate soup by substituting olive oil for palm oil and adding coconut milk to the broth. At the same time, it is cooked in clay containers in Capixaba pots, which are made from clay and mangrove juice.
After shaping and firing the pot, the juice is reapplied, which gives the clay a black color and makes it waterproof. Before use, the pan must be treated with the same oil a couple of times.
A more authentic version is Moqueca Bahiana (Peixada), which is a soup made from a wide variety of seafood and fish based on palm oil with the addition of Annatto dye (it is well known to forum users who make cheese).
Annatto or Bixa annata (lat. Bíxa orellána) - a shrub or small tree originating from the tropical regions of the American continent; species of the genus Bix of the Bix family.The seed-derived dye is widely used in Latin American and Filipino cuisine to brighten fish, meat, color cheeses and add vegetable oil to salads.
The Indians use this dye to color the body, especially the lips and hair. Various parts of the plant are used to treat the effects of sunstroke, burns and headaches.

Super! I will definitely cook it! This must be super tasty! And very informative!
Thanks to the author!
Olya, how delicious it is, I will definitely cook it too! Thank you very much for sharing such a wonderful recipe! I am delighted with the photo!
Kapet, Thank you so much! Pleasantly! Give an estimate after preparation, I will wait. Maybe you can add something of your own, you are doing great. Direct the spice to your liking!
Rada-dms, Ol, and I would try the plate! Then another plate! Such an appetizing soup !!!
Cvetaal, Svetochka, thank you for the compliment to the photo. At the dacha it is difficult to find something suitable, as it happened, but I tried to take a more cheerful photo to cheer everyone up! The soup is delicious, do it once only.
Ukka, Olya, you won't believe, but I did just that! As I began to try, so half and capitalized. Well, my husband immediately poured it into a bowl.
In general, I am not indifferent to soups. Hopefully, the times will come, everything will return to normal, and we will cook delicious soups again, and not from stocks.

and we will cook delicious soups again, and not from stocks.
Olya, just talking to her brother, was in Globus (Elektrostal, visited my mother), everything is filled with groceries and various goods, there is everything in large quantities, there are very few people, cash desks are free, parking is also

Shrimp !!!!! Well, Olya, again a blow below the belt. I have a deep faint. I can imagine what aroma and taste!
Cvetaal, I am also sure that the products will not go anywhere, there is a stock for a month, so I always have it. And there, like everyone else, everything will be.
We only go to the Globe at night, apparently, people and delivery men clean up during the day.

Shrimp !!!!! Well, Olya, again a blow below the belt. I have a deep faint. I can imagine what aroma and taste!
I move the ladle by the nose, you will immediately come out of a swoon from the aromas!
Get ready, I have two more packs of these shrimps in stock, so to be continued.
Olenka, what kind of soup is just a release of endorphins and a cup of fish
Tatyana1103, Tanya, thank you, always glad to see you! Treat yourself to at least a delicious photo, and if you wish, then cook the soup, it is delicious, in our opinion, it turns out.
A bowl in Lenta was bought for mere pennies, I regret that I bought only four of them.
I could hardly resist not to go for seasonings in the middle of the night. Only the lack of shrimp kept it. I'll cook today. If without rice, then probably quite a light soup will come out.
Irriska1963, there is little rice, mainly fish or shrimps and onions with peppers.
I will wait for impressions! Spiciness and seasonings to your taste. ...
Rada-dms, this is our way, in Brazilian !!
It looks gorgeous, I can imagine how delicious it is !!
Lerele, Caramba! Well, we are all almost Brazilians at heart! And, by the way, they are somewhat similar. I know them firsthand.
The soup is great, if the coconut flavor does not bother you, cook it, Irish!
Rada-dms, well, I will not cook, there is no milk and in the store for it at the present time it seems like no reason, although there are shrimps
We'll need to buy in stock when we go to the store to shop. But it will be in a week, everything is there.
Lerele, where to go conceived, call delivery !!!!
lettohka ttt
Rada-dms, Mdaaa ... here is teteA naturLihh Ol, and Ol? Do you have a lot of such yummy? If sho, preserve! As the borders are opened, welcome!
Rada-dms, ha three times, no delivery terms, no delivery at all.
It is not very developed here, delivery is not in all stores.
So with legs, legs or cars
LereleProbably, it is not customary for you to make large stocks ... But how will lonely elderly people get out of the situation?
Rada-dms, who can not do it yourself, there are special care firms, depends on what you can do yourself. If you can't go to the store, they'll buy you everything. If you can't wash, help you wash. Depends on the degree of disability and there is still a degree of care.
And so, I think, the neighbors will be asked, there are also sympathetic people, hardly anyone will refuse.
All the more so, everyone drives their cars for purchases; it's not a problem to take an extra bag of groceries.
In the store, I saw many times how different purchases were made from the same cart, a separate check was checked against the list. It means to someone.
