Vatapá [vɐtɐˈpa] is a Brazilian dish made from bread, shrimp, coconut milk, finely ground peanuts and palm oil mashed into a creamy paste. This food is very popular in the North and Northeast, but it is more typical in the northeastern state of Bahia where it is commonly eaten with acarajé, although vatapá is often eaten with white rice in other regions of Brazil. Alternatively, the shrimp can be replaced with ground tuna, chicken or cod among other options.[1]
