Today I will delight you with a wonderful recipe for local New Zealand cuisine! This is raw fish in coconut sauce. In fact, it cannot be said that this recipe is prepared only in New Zealand.
Raw fish is a favorite dish among many people of the Pacific Islands. Each island cooks in its own way. In Tahiti, this dish can only be tasted in a restaurant. On the street, it is unlikely to be sold. Anyway, in French Polynesia eateries are not so common, except perhaps on some remote archipelagos.
On the islands of Tonga, I often ate raw fish. There it is cooked according to approximately the same recipe as the Maori of New Zealand. In general, in Tonga, residents do not really stand on ceremony with how and what to eat. Sometimes slices of freshly caught fish are cut and eaten directly, even without any sauces.
Well, back to the Maori people and local customs. Actually, one of the options for preparing this unusual dish.
It does not take much time.
P.S. The longer the dish is in the refrigerator, the tastier it becomes.
