Poisson Cru or E'ia Ota (Tahitian Lime-Marinated Tuna)

30 mins (prep 30)
8 ingredients
4-6 servings
If you like sushi, you will love this! This famous Tahitian dish is similar to Latin ceviche or Hawaiian poke. It differs primarily in the addition of coconut milk, which softens its flavor. Poisson cru only marinates very briefly so the lime juice doesn't have time to "cook" the inside of the fish. The Tahitian name for poisson cru is e'ia ota. The same dish is called oka i'a in Samoa. I included the resting time in the prep time. Enjoy!
