The “Poisson Cru” (Raw Fish)
Tuna, swordfish, mahi mahi, or fish from the lagoon – Fish is at the heart of the local gastronomy.
The national dish is the “Poisson Cru” (Raw Fish) which is prepared in various ways.
First, there is the Tahitian preparation which is a mixture of fish marinated in lime juice, vegetables, and covered with coconut milk. A pure delight !
With the arrival of Asian people, the recipe was adapted for Chinese-style raw fish.
The fish is marinated in a sweet sauce, then vegetables are added which have also been prepared in a Chinese tradition.
But do not be mistaken, this dish is just as much appreciated by Asian people as it is by “locals”.
