Polynesian Style Raw Fish

By Holley | In Competition, Recipes | on November 29, 2012

Today’s post comes from Anna who is sharing the recipe she learned while on her honeymoon. Good news, we’ll all get to sample it at the holiday party!

During our honeymoon in Bora Bora Brian and I fell in love with a traditional Polynesian dish, which also happens to be paleo. Since the island is literally a speck in the middle of the ocean, you can understand that tuna is as prevalent on the menus as avocados are in California.  Fortunately for me this dish was served daily in our included breakfast buffet, which proved to be a temporary distraction from the delicious pastry display.  The Tahitian islands are French colonies and these people take their bread seriously.

The recipe below was provided via a poolside demo (more than one cocktail in) therefore the proportions could be completely off.  But give it a try, and if you need a professional opinion I’ll be happy to sample and let you know how you did.

Polynesian Style Raw Fish
1 lb sashimi grade ahi tuna cubed
2 cups coconut milk (also made fresh by poolside demo, but probably easier to just buy a can from TJs)
Juice of 2 limes
1 cucumber cubed
2 tomatoes cubed
1 small white onion sliced thin
S&P to taste

Place tuna in large mixing bowl and season with S&P. Squeeze lime juice and let marinade for a few min. Add coconut milk to stop the cooking process. Mix together remaining ingredients and enjoy.

For presentation points, serve in 1/2 coconut with leftover shavings on top. For more presentation points, serve on an island paradise looking out into crystal clear ocean water with a beverage in hand.

    I was planning on bringing a similar dish to the holiday party, although my version originates from Guam and it’s made with chicken (cooked), lemon juice, and shredded coconut.

    I might have to change it now, we don’t want too many similar foods!

    Mike S. – you should bring your dish because ridiculous quantities of food are consumed at CFI parties. More is better!!

    Silly Mike S, Kathy is right. More is better. There’s a technique to AMRAP buffet table at our parties. Ask Sean about it!

    Does anybody want to chip in and get a whole roasted pig? $250

    It might be too late to order (and it’s most likely not organic/free-range/etc) but if there’s enough interest I think it would be a great idea!
