1 large chopped onion

Salt and black pepper to taste)
¾ cup of cassava flour (approximately)

How to make fish head mush:
Separate all the ingredients you will use in this recipe. If you don't want to put palm oil in your broth, replace it with paprika and also add olive oil. Fish heads need to be clean.
Tip: With the rest of the fish you can prepare a moqueca, if you prefer!
Season the fish heads with salt, black pepper and lemon. In a medium saucepan, place the fish heads and cover with tomato, onion, garlic, green smell and let it taste for a few minutes (with the heat still off).
Cover with water, coconut milk and palm oil or paprika and mix gently.
Turn the heat on and let this fish broth with coconut milk cook for about 20 to 25 minutes over a low heat.
When this time has passed, remove the fish heads from the broth and separate the meat from the fish, discarding the carcasses.
Return the shredded fish meat to the broth so that your mush has more flavor and is very rustic.
Tip: If you prefer a broth without seasoning, before adding the fish meat, strain the broth with the aid of a sieve.
With the heat turned off, add the manioc flour little by little, stirring constantly to avoid lumps.
Tip: The consistency of your mush will depend on the amount of flour. The less flour, the less thin the mush will be. For this amount of broth and flour that we suggest, the mush will have a creamy and firm consistency.
Turn on the heat after mixing all the flour in the broth, adjust the salt and stir without stopping until the mush thickens and peels a little from the bottom of the pan.
Your simple fish mush is ready and will be perfect as an accompaniment to a fish or seafood stew! We hope you enjoyed the recipe and bon appetit!
