Farfantepenaeus brasiliensis e F. paulensis

Large and meaty, packed with flavor, it is the predominant species in South and Southeast regions. Because of its beauty and size − it can reach up to 7 inches −, it is also often used to decorate dishes. It is the star ingredient in bobós and moquecas (fish stews), and Camarão na moranga (shrimp concoction served inside a pumpkin); it is also enjoyed simply fried.
