Most islands have their own version of raw fish in coconut cream. This is one and I can not remember where it originates, the cook islands perhaps?

I have been making raw fish for ever. (it isn't raw at all. It's cook with the acid of the lemon/lime juice. Just for you that don't know. You can cook with heat , acid or microwave. This dish is cooked with acid). I also add a slice or mashed hard boiled egg on top. Yummmmmmmmm - 05 Apr 2014
