This moqueca recipe uses paprika instead of the more traditional palm oil to get that saffron color, and it’s the perfect time to take advantage of fresh tomatoes and peppers for the sauce.

Author's Notes

You can use any other firm white-fleshed fish like haddock, striped bass, cod, scrod, pollack, snapper, or mahi mahi.

Directions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).
Step 2
In a large mixing bowl, toss the Skinless Hake Fillets (1.5 lb) with the Garlic (2 cloves) , Lime Juice (1/3 cup) , Coconut Cream (5.4 fl oz) , Sea Salt (to taste) , and Paprika (1/2 tsp) . Marinate the fish while you prepare the remaining ingredients.
Step 3
Place four 15×12-inch sheets of parchment paper (roughly the length of a standard rimmed baking sheet/half sheet pan) on a work surface. Fold each sheet in half lengthwise, then reopen the paper.
Step 4
Place a few pieces of fish on one side of each sheet.
Step 5
Scatter the Shallots (2) , Tomatoes (2 cups) , and Orange Bell Pepper (1) around the fish in one layer, being careful not to cover it, leaving at least an inch of space around the edges of the packet. Season the veggies lightly with Sea Salt (to taste) .
Step 6
Ladle the remaining coconut cream mixture over the veggies and garnish with a generous tablespoon of Fresh Cilantro (1/2 cup) .
Step 7
Fold the parchment over the fish and fold the edges from one side to the other, making sure the lines are clean so that no air escapes. The end result will look like a tightly sealed empanada origami.
Step 8
Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, or until the packets are puffed and a toothpick inserted through the top slides easily into the fish.
Step 9
Allow to cool for a minute before opening, then serve immediately directly in the packets or spooned over rice or quinoa, with additional cilantro, Fresh Basil Leaves (1/4 cup) , and lime wedges for garnish.
