last week i went out to dinner with some friends to sergio's sarava, a local brazilian restaurant which serves up the most excellent fare.
when i was deciding what to get i immediately went to the section of the menu titled flavors of brasil, when i read the description for xim xim, i knew exactly what i wanted!

a slow-braised stew with morsels of free-range chicken and gulf shrimp, peppers, tomato, carrots, palm oil, coconut milk, and malaguetta pepper. Served over
Brazilian rice, and topped with roasted peanuts.
