1tsp of ground coriander

1tsp ground cumin

1tsp turmeric

hot pepper sauce to serve

bunch of scallions and cilantro leaves chopped.

Serve with white rice.

Soak the dried shrimp in 3 cups of warm water for 15 minutes. Then puree in a blender with

onion, garlic, cumin, turmeric, coriander, tomatoes, 2 TBSP of lemon juice, to make the fish’s “tempero” (seasoning).

Meanwhile, the fish is waiting in the pot then I add the liquids from the blender. Cook the the fish for 7 minutes.

In the clean blender, add 5 cups of milk with bread ¾ of a french bread cut—soak in milk 5 minutes. Blend.

When the fish is ready, add fresh shrimp and add cajus and peanuts,. When the mixture goes to a boil add coconut milk, milk with bread mixture, “azeite de dende”, cilantro, scallions,

Ladle the stew over the rice and garnish with the remaining 1/4 cup chopped cilantro.

Pão de Queijo” 3 ingredients da Celeste

Ingredients:

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Make small balls by rolling about 1 heaping tablespoon of dough in the palm of your hand.  Use the extra yuca flour to prevent the dough from sticking to your hands.  Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake in the middle of the oven for 25-30 minutes (Remember no peaking!)
