Shrimp stew (Bobó de Camarão) is a classic dish from the state of Bahia and one of the cornerstones of the Afro-Bahian tradition of cooking that is so strongly linked to the state and to its capital, Salvador. It contains most of the fundamental ingredients in the Bahian cook's larder - cassava, coconut milk (lots of it!), palm oil, and the sweet fresh shrimps for which Brazil's north-east coast is so famous. And if Brazil declared a national dessert, it would most likely be passion fruit mousse (Mousse de Maracujá)! A first-generation Cuban American who lived in Brazil as an adult, Ammy Martinez loves to share recipes from her cultural and culinary heritage.
