Baked Shrimp with Savory Meringue (Camarão à Marta Rocha)

shrimp_marta_rocha_brazilian_recipe

Savory meringue tops this traditonal Brazilian shrimp dish, created and named after Marta Rocha, Brazillian Miss Universe runner-up. Popular on the menu of sophisticated restaurants on the 50's, 60's and 70's (it was a time when the Brazilian cooks would try to mimic the French Chefs), this retro dish is now hard to find anywhere, since Brazilian cuisine is highlighting more its own resources, thankfully! But when I was a little girl growing up in Curitiba, my parents would take us to a restaurant called Restaurante Iguacu (only in very special ocassions). We used to feel very special eating such "sophisticated" meal. I hope you enjoy!
