Brazilian salmon stew

Serves 4



  • The cloves from 1/2 head of garlic, peeled, crushed, minced
  • 2 tbsp x fresh lime juice
  • 3/4 tsp x coarse salt
  • 1 tbsp x sweet paprika
  • 2 tsp x coriander (powder)
  • 2.5 tsp x dried cumin (powder works too)
  • 1.5 tsp x freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp x Olive Oil
  • 0.75 kg x salmon, cut into fillets per person
  • 2 x medium onions, sliced
  • 1 large x red bell pepper, seeded, de-stemmed, and sliced
  • 2 x medium tomatoes, sliced
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tin x coconut milk
  • 1-2 cups x fresh coriander, chopped
  • 2-3 tbsp x olive oil
  • Freshly cooked rice for serving


  1. Mix together the marinade ingredients. Let the salmon marinate in this paste for at least 2 hours (overnight is best). The longer, the better.
  2. In a large pan (large covered skillet), coat the bottom of the pan with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil.  Add a layer of sliced onions, and then a layer of sliced bell peppers, and a layer of sliced tomatoes.  Place the fish pieces, with the marinade, on top of everything, and start layering again - onions, bell peppers, and tomatoes.  Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.  Add about half the fresh coriander to the top.  Pour coconut milk over the top.
  3. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and let simmer for 30 minutes to an hour, until the vegetables are cooked through.
  4. Serve with rice (if you want) & garnish with the remaining fresh coriander.
