Brazilian Salmon Stew
In one of my crazed research for new recipes I discovered this gem! With some refinement I made it super simple & tasty, plus good for your brain. It takes a long time to marinade and then just let it cook in a pan.
Time : Total 3 hours - 2 hours for marinade + 60 minutes to cook.
This recipe is simple & great for your brain! With over 200%* vitamin B-12 and 100% vitamin C, D and magnesium this dish helps battle fatigue, depression, insomnia and memory. The added 70% B-6, 55% omega 3s and vitamin E support vitamin D and B-12 fight that evil fatigue. With Q10 and a dash of B-2 alongside the magnesium it helps reduce headaches and 20% vitamin A helps support learning which in turn improves your memory.

- Mix together the marinade ingredients. Let the salmon marinate in this paste for at least 2 hours (overnight is best). The longer, the better.
- 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.
- Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and let simmer for 30 minutes to an hour, until the vegetables are cooked through.
- Serve with rice (if you want) & garnish with the remaining fresh coriander.
