  • About

This recipe takes its inspiration from Bahia in northern Brazil. Bahia has been called the New Orleans of Brazil. Nowhere are African influences on Brazilian cooking more evident or more delicious. Coconut milk, cilantro, fiery chiles, and peanuts are the cornerstones of Bahian cooking. They come together here to provide a rich, hauntingly flavorful sauce for grilled shrimp.
