    threeovens's Note:

    This poor recipe started in Portugal, then traveled to Brazil during colonization, and now, somehow, ended up in my kitchen. My husband requested this, but I could not find a definitive recipe since there seem to be two distinct versions, one with fresh cilantro and one without. Also coconut milk is not always used. Some used squid and cod as well as the shellfish. This is a shortcut version. If you cannot get the Goya Recaito you can substitute by adding a minced garlic clove and a bunch of chopped, fresh cilantro with the onions. You'll probably want to blend this for a smoother consistency. Serve with crusty bread.

      This recipe is delicious I did experiment and added fresh big pieces of tilapia and instead of bread do try it with fresh homemade tortillas.
