The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival started a few days ago and I’m already in love with a new dish at the Brazil marketplace.
Located between the France and Morocco pavilions, Brazil has always been a favorito of mine and of many guests. But this year, they’ve added Moqueca, a seafood stew that is to die for!
It features scallops, shrimp and white fish with coconut-lime sauce on top of steamed rice. It’s so flavorful, with the right spice level to satisfy all!
And good news! I talked with the Festival team and they graciously shared the Moqueca recipe with all #DisneyFamilia readers!
