This is a great recipe! I didn't have scallops when I made it so I just added extra fish. And this stew is great served over a bowl of rice.
A very tasty dish - I didn't have cilantro, so I used parsley and some fresh lime zest. Served over rice - turning it into a Brazilian gumbo.
I made this yesterday and it was great! Even my 2 year old son like it. I am from Brazil and it was great to try this Brazilian Seafood stew.
