Another recipe from ChilliPepperPete, this time it is Moqueca a Brazilian fish dish from the Amazon, normally they use Piranha, but as this is not a local fish for us, any firm white fish will do.

3 Large Potatoes
200g Rice
200g Red Dahl
1 Tin Pinto beans
5-10 Birdseye Chillies

1 Tin Chopped Tomatoes or fresh chopped tomatoes
1/2 Block Creamed Coconut
2 Lemons/Limes
1 Handful Coriander or Parsley
1 Stock Cube


  • Boil Potatoes and chop into 1/2 inch cubes.
  • Cook rice with the Red dahl and the tin of Pinto beans.
  • Roll over with a rolling pin a handful of birdseye chilli.
