Season 400 gr of lobster with salt and pepper and set aside (do not wash the lobster with lemon, to keep it soft). Put 80 gr of palm oil, 2 garlic cloves and 100 gr of chopped onion in the pan, and let it sauté. Then, add 100 gr of chopped peppers and  the same weight of chopped tomatoes.

​Add the lobster, already seasoned, and allow it to boil for 15 minutes. Add 200 ml of coconut milk, 100 gr of coriander and the juice of 4 average lemons.

​Let it cook for another 15 minutes.

Where to eat

It is a national dish, with many variations with all kinds of fish, seafood or meat, that can be found throughout the territory.

I had my best experience in:

Donana, Praia do Forte, Salvador

Good company


I would like to recommend a good Brazilian white wine, but, in this week in Brazil, I only met a Brazilian wine (a good red), in the airport when leaving.

I think that this strong dish goes better with white, so I chose some of the locally tasted ones, from Chile Argentina and… Portugal, of course (the one I used).
