Woman On Top Moqueca (Brazilian Fish Stew) Recipe

Moqueca is a traditional Brazilian Fish Stew. In the movie Woman on Top, Isabella can mesmerize palates with her cooking…and men…wherever she goes.  Fleeing from her cheating husband and their restaurant in her native Brazil, she lands in San Francisco to start over from scratch. She gets to host a cooking show and this is one of the dishes she makes.

A spicy and flavourful stew with with a soothing hint of coconut milk. Give it a try.
