Marilyn loves Brazilian food! She never had it until she met me. Since then little by little I have been cooking different types of Brazilian food for her. The other day I made this typical dish served in restaurants by the beaches in Brazil: shrimp on pineapple gratin. In Brazil this dish is served with farofa and kale. If you’ve never had Brazilian food before I can tell you it is not spicy (unless you are in certain parts of Brazil) It is a very easy and delicious summer meal.
1/2 pound shrimp
1/4 red bell pepper (diced)
1/4 yellow bell pepper (diced)
1 onion diced (small)
1 can creme de leite
1 can of coconut milk
1 pinch pepper
50 ml white wine
2 tablespoons cornstarch dissolved in water
Cut the pineapple in half vertically. Remove the fruit, cut into small cubes and set aside. Do not take the crown off.
Sauté garlic in olive oil until in becomes golden. Add the onions and peppers and sauté. Add the shrimp. Cook for 2 minutes. Add the wine and reduce.
