A well-seasoned mix of fresh and dry fish — Calulu is a mouth-watering Angolan speciality!

Combine both fresh and dry fish with tomato, garlic, spinach, quiabos, sweet potato, abobrinha and palm oil  and you will get Calulu, a tasty Angolan speciality that is said to have originated from a similar Brazilian dish. The stew is cooked in a pan, where ingredients settle between layers of dry fish and fresh fish. The result is served with an accompaniment of beans and funge (maize and cassava flour).


Calulu is a fairly common dish in Angola and can be found in Luanda’s main restaurants.
