Chef’s Notes

  • Bobó de Camarão is an iconic Brazilian Shrimp Stew recipe that features shrimp, palm oil, tomato, peppers, coconut milk, and yuca root
  • This colorful dish has a delicate flavor and texture, thanks to the combination of yuca and coconut milk. It’s an easy, yet impressive 
one-pot recipe meant for serving over rice
  • Shrimp bobó is nearly identical to the West African dish Ipetê, and it is one of the many iconic recipes from the Bahia region of Brazil, which is known for its heavy Afro-Brazilian influences
  • Instead of shrimp, ​​this recipe can be made with chicken, tofu, or vegetables. The non-vegetarian broths listed can also be substituted with vegetable stock.

Kitchen Tools Needed

  • Blender, food processor, or a hand blender
  • A large pot and a pot to make the rice
  • Cutting board and knife
  • Wooden Spoon
