Piracuí is traditionally known in the Amazon region as "farinha de peixe" (fish meal) and is traditionally made from dried salted fish and crushed or shredded. The most common fishes are acari and tamuatá, but piracuí can be made from other species of fish, such as bodó. It is eaten mixed with olive oil, onion and cassava flour. It also serves to make fried dumplings.[1]
