Palm oil specialities Brazil
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Palm oil specialities

These are typical of the region of Salvador da Bahia. It is better to be informed before trying them, as palm oil, even in small quantities, can cause digestive disorders in sensitive people. In the typical restaurants of Salvador, where the meal is accompanied by a spectacle of Capoeira, there are often two buffets: one with dishes prepared with palm oil, and the other without. Meat and fish are served with chilli, peanut and coconut milk sauces.
