1 – Brazilian Shrimp: Among the main ingredients used in the preparation of the bobó with shrimp recipe, in addition to the seafood itself, is palm oil, which must be of good quality to give the bobó the perfect taste.
1 kg of clean medium shrimp
1 tablespoon of finely chopped cilantro

Coconut milk as per recipe (or 1 and 1/2 bottle of 400 ml coconut milk)

1 kg of cassava (cassava, manioc) cooked and without the lint in the middle
Season the prawns with salt and chopped cilantro and let it rest for an hour or so.
In that time cook the cassava and make the coconut milk (see the links in the post).
Beat the cooked cassava with the coconut milk until it becomes a cream and set aside.
In a pan put the olive oil and the onion and let it fry a little. Add the tomatoes and sauté a little more.
Add to this stew the prawns already seasoned.
As soon as the prawns change color, add the beaten cassava cream with the coconut milk.
Mix very well and add more salt.
Add the palm oil, stir well.
Let it heat up well, until it boils and turn off, it’s ready.
2 – Colorful shrimp risotto: Risotto is another traditional dish that goes very well with fresh shrimp. And this colorful version is perfect for serving friends or family over a Saturday lunch. On the list of ingredients are arboreal rice, raw shrimp with peel, onion, olive oil, red and yellow peppers, salt, parmesan, parsley and pepper. The mixture is delicious!

Place the heads, tails and shells of the shrimp to boil in two liters of water for 10 minutes.
Season the prawns with salt and pepper to taste and store in the refrigerator.
Sauté the chopped onion and peppers for 5 minutes in a large saucepan.
Add the rice and salt, saute.
Remove the shells, heads and tail of the shrimp from the broth, passing it through a sieve and discard them (keep the broth always heated in a separate pan).
Add the risotto with the shrimp broth and stir a little until the broth starts to dry, water a little, stir a little, always on low heat.
When the rice is ready , add the chopped parsley and the prawns, parmesan and butter.
Turn off the heat and mix gently until the shrimp are pinkish.
3 – Rice with shrimp and tilapia: This recipe is the perfect choice for those who really love seafood. Here, the mixture of fish, tilapia and shrimp promises to give a special flavor to the dish. In addition to them, common white rice is used, but you can also replace it with tree rice, if you find it better.
Ingredients for rice
250g frozen shrimp
2 cups white rice (or arboreal)
1 lemon and a half
½ chopped onion
a little dry white wine (the amount varies according to your taste)
1 clove of garlic
1 spoon of butter
2 tablespoons of grated parmesan
1 tomato and ½ chopped without seed
A handful of parsley
Salt and Tabasco
Let the shrimp thaw and in a bowl place it with the lemon juice for about 15 minutes.
In a pan sauté the onion and let it brown. Then add the tomatoes, rice and parsley and stir a little. Add 4 cups of water, season with salt and cook over low heat until all the water is dry.
While the rice is cooking, I put shrimp and garlic in a frying pan. Season with a little salt (remembering that we are going to add it with the rice that has already been salted) and a little tabasco.
When the shrimp is starting to turn pink, add the wine, turn the pan a little so that the wine comes into contact with the stove fire to flambé the shrimp. After the fire goes out, stir the shrimp a little more until it turns pink. Turn off the heat on the skillet and set aside.
With the rice ready, turn off the heat and place the spoon of butter. Add the shrimp and stir carefully until everything is incorporated, finally add the Parmesan cheese and mix a little more.
Ingredients for tilapia
2 tilapia fillets
1 lemon juice
Black pepper to taste
Let the tilapia marinate in the lemon with salt and pepper for +/- 20 min. Heat the skillet and put the tilapia to “grill”, when it is almost ready spread the sprigs of rosemary and leave it there until it gets the point.
There, now is the time to serve and enjoy this delight !!!

When we are in the kitchen, things are not done on “automatic”, attention and focus are needed. So, during practice, we disconnect a little from everyday problems, reducing the stress generated by these constant thoughts.
Without being mushy, let alone cliché, for me, when cooking for someone, love is the essential touch to start any recipe.
An important fact that we need to highlight when making the decision to cook is to take pleasure in what we do. We will have an opposite result when doing it out of obligation or simply for doing it. When we take our time and mix it with pleasure and affection, we create a relationship with food, transferring the love of cooking in the form of seasoning. It is necessary to love what we do, cooking is no different, it is a way of loving people.
I wish you all a great week and I hope you enjoy the dishes! 🙂
