My great (late) friend, famed newspaperman Johnny Apple, has written that these fritters are found in abundance from lacey white dressed street vendors on the streets of Bahía and in particular from the colonial district called the “Pelourinho,” whose very name is a reminder of harsher days; pelourinho means “flogging post” in Portuguese. These snacks are often served with a somewhat complex Brazilian sauce called vatapá but I have stuffed them with an equally delicious crab salad.
