I'm planning a Brazilian party, and this recipe looks good. This is my translation of the original translation;-)

So wonderfully seasoned. I replaced the pepper sauce with 1 tablespoon Thai kitchen curry paste,the parsley with cilantro and keffer lime leaves. I think I would like to add Shrimp and scallops next time around to give it a more heartier stew. Served over Dal and Jasmin rice. Talk about bringing the world together through food. Thanks Jan!
