Nan's Raw Fish

Raw fish is an absolute family favorite in our whole extended family.. my Mum's mother, My Nan, grew up in Fiji, and as a family ourselves we spent a few years living in Rarotonga. So Raw fish is a bit of a staple, our Xmas Eve entree was this delectable serving of raw fish, made just like Nan used to. Called Ika Maata in Rarotonga, and Kokoda in Fiji. I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and often do when I'm in the islands! It's easy, tasty, fresh and packed full of goodness. Feel free to make your own adjustments (add in cherry tomatoes/capsicum/rocket salad) and Enjoy x



500 grams Raw white Fish (I use firm fish like Tarakihi or cod, but also anything that is on special - or even better - freshly caught!)

Juice of 3 limes

1 can coconut cream

Bunch of coriander

Chopped capsicum/cherry tomatoes/spring onion

Iceberg lettuce to serve in

Salt and pepper to taste


Chop the fish into small bite size pieces and lay flat in a dish. Cover with lime juice and refrigerate for an hour (minimum) or overnight (maximum), tossing occasionally to make sure all the fish is marinated (when it's ready, the fish will turn a white colour)

Put iceberg lettuce leaves in individual serving dishes.

Mix the fish, coconut cream, coriander and other seasonal vegetables in a bowl, and serve into individual dishes. Add S&P to taste.

Serves 4 small portions or 2 large!

Enjoy! Carly xx
