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 doesnt have time to cook the inside of the fish. The Tahitian name for poisson cru is eia ota. The same dish is called oka ia in Samoa. I included the resting time in the prep time. Enjoy!
