Discover the Mouthwatering Recipe of Brazilian Lime Fish Stew

This wonderful Brazilian fish stew recipe pairs 'bacalhao' or salt cod with a suitably tangy lime and coconut sauce. Marcello likes to add a little more Brazilian flavour to this dish by garnishing with a spoonful of caipirinha gel - find the recipe here. Don't forget to soak the bacalhao in water overnight before using.
