Raw Fish - a Recipe from The Cook Islands
1 lb tuna fish (preferred because of no bones)
1 big onion
½ small cabbage
1 small cucumber
enough lemon juice to cover fish
2 hard-boiled eggs
salt and pepper to taste
1-1½ cups coconut cream, or fresh cream
Wash fish well and cut into small pieces. Soak in lemon juice. Chill
Cut up onions, cabbage, cucumber, tomatoes, capsicum very finely.
Strain some of the lemon juice from fish and mix all ingredients.
Add coconut cream and season to taste.
Lastly grate 1 or 2 hard boiled eggs on top of the fish.
