Moqueca is a very versatile dish from the central coast of Brazil that can be easily adapted to what you have on hand or find in your seafood market, as well as if anyone in your party has a dietary restriction or allergy. It can be made with fish only (I recommend fish steaks because the bones bring a nice flavor/consistency to the dish), shrimp only, swap clams or mussels, or you can add fresh crab, lobster tail, scallops or cooked octopus to make it even more interesting. Dende oil is a thick, dark, reddish-orange, strong-flavored oil extracted from the pulp of a fruit from a type of palm tree grown in Africa and in Brazil. It is used in cooking in West Africa and in Brazil. It can be easily found online. A little bit goes a long way. Brazilian peppers have different flavors and heat profiles. They usually come brined in vinegar, and are easily found online as well. You can always use your favorite fresh peppers or pepper sauce: Just add it to the sauce before the seafood goes in.
