A fresh, spicy, and aromatic marinade for fish, seafood, or even vegetables. Just thinly slice them and marinate in this sauce to create different, versatile, and fresh dishes, as shown in the fish tiradito recipe.
You can choose any chili pepper you like as long, as it brings spiciness to the dish.

Peel ¼ thumb of ginger and add to the tucupi
Trim and deseed 1 chili pepper and add to the tucupi
Simmer for 10m to set the flavors. Transfer to another container and discard the ginger and chili
Chop the white part of 4 scallions. Reserve the greens for another recipe
Trim, peel, and roughly chop ½ cucumber
Add the cucumber and chopped scallions to a blender
Add the tucupi and blend on high speed until smooth. Add a little bit of water if the taste is too strong or too spicy
