Brazilian Style Fish Stew (Moqueca)
Simple and so-fish-ticated…this tasty Brazilian style fish stew reeled me right in!
Wild caught Catch Sitka rockfish cooked in a zesty tomato-coconut broth with a little heat and a lot of zing!
I’m so grateful to have such a variety of seafood added to my menu recently! Trying all kinds of new things with the awesome gift box of goodies from Catch Sitka!
