These delicious Brazilian Shrimp Fritters with black-eyed pea dough come all the way from Bahia!
Acarajé are Brazilian Shrimp Fritters that come all the way from the state of Bahia. They are product of a mixture between Brazilian and African cooking; street vendors all across Bahia sell them.
Don’t be fooled by their small size or appearance, these delicious treats are packed with protein from the shrimp. The dough is made mostly of black-eyed peas meaning that it’s way more filling than regular doughs. They are a bit tricky to make but totally delicious and worth it.
