Yewande Komolafe is at the kitchen studio showing us how to make moqueca, a rich seafood stew. Moqueca hails from the state of Bahia in northeastern Brazil, the heart of Afro-Brazilian culture and its rich culinary heritage. Built on the freshest seafood you can find, moqueca delivers a creamy, spicy richness with just a few central ingredients. At the dish’s base is sautéed garlic, onion, tomatoes and sweet peppers, and a fresh chile adds heat that will linger gently. Coconut milk gives the stew body, and last but not least, red palm oil (azeite de dendê in Portuguese) acts as the glue that holds it all together.
