Moqueca de Camarões (Paleo Brazilian Shrimp Stew)

In honor of the 2016 Olympics being in Rio 
and having friends who live there, 
tonight's menu includes Brazilian Moqueca De Camaroes.
This is a traditional Shrimp Stew 
that I've tweaked to make it Paleo.
We served this with a purchased 

Brazilian Cheese Bread (Parmesan-Primal)! 
Just so you know...
The flavors are killer!

Here is how you do it:

A delicious and easy Paleo-friendly soup.
Serves about 6 

1.5-2 lbs raw shrimp, peeled, cleaned & deveined
¼ cup red palm oil (traditional)...or olive oil
1/2 med onion, diced (I usually use white)

1-2 cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup roasted red pepper, diced
¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
14 oz can diced tomatoes w/ chili's
1 cup coconut milk
2 Tbsp Sriracha hot sauce
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice (1/2 a lime)
salt and pepper to taste

1-Heat oil in a medium soup pot.
2-Saute onions until translucent and start to soften
3-Add the garlic and peppers and cook for a few minutes more.
4-Add the tomatoes and cilantro to the pot and mix well.
5-Add the shrimp and cook until the shrimp turn pink and opaque.
6-Add in the coconut milk and Sriracha sauce and heat through.
Note: Do not let the stew boil.
6-Add fresh lime juice and stir.
7-Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve in bowls and garnished with fresh cilantro.

NOTE:   You can substitute any mild white fish, or even chicken, for the protein in this recipe.

This is a traditional Brazilian soup.  I have no idea who originally wrote it.  I was introduced to this soup by a friend from Rio and it has been slightly tweaked for personal flavor and compliance.
