Here is a basic and easy recipe to prepare your vatapá:


  • 500g dried shrimp (shell and head removed)

  • 500ml coconut milk

  • 200g roasted, skinless peanuts

  • 2 medium onions chopped

  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped

  • 2 ripe tomatoes, chopped

  • 1 chopped green pepper

  • 1 chopped red pepper

  • 1 bunch of green chillies (parsley and coriander), chopped

  • 100ml palm oil

  • 100g crustless bread (or cassava flour)

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • Salt to taste

  • Black pepper to taste

  • Water (quantity required)

Preparation mode

  • Start by washing the dried shrimp well under running water to remove excess salt. Then let them soak in water for about 1 hour.
  • In a large pan, heat the olive oil and sauté the onion and garlic until golden.
  • Add the previously hydrated and drained shrimp, sautéing them until cooked.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes, peppers and chives, stirring well to incorporate the flavors.
  • In a blender, place the coconut milk, roasted and skinless peanuts, and blend until you obtain a homogeneous mixture.
  • Pour the blender mixture into the pan with the other ingredients, stirring constantly to prevent it from sticking to the bottom.
  • Then add the palm oil, salt and black pepper to taste. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
  • Let it cook over low heat for about 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent it from burning.
  • If the vatapá is too liquid, add sliced ​​bread (or cassava flour) to thicken the consistency. Stir well until incorporated.
  • Continue cooking for a few more minutes until you reach the desired texture, which should be creamy and consistent.
