A Classic Fijian Dish

    Could it be "kokoda"? Made with fish, limes, coconut cream, onion, chilli, tomatoes and green pepper. Picture on the bottom right.

    I agree Neil: fijian kokoda!

    All these dishes look lovely, but I'd pick the bottom left version: creamy, salty, slightly spicy with garlic toast... hmmm...

    yes, looks like that dish we had in Tahiti...mahi mahi marinated in lime and coconut.

    I want some, now!

    Wow gorgeous hyper pro blog. I am very impressed. I'll add you to my blog and see how we go, I was looking for a cookery one x

    Kokoda, of course is correct -

    but my favourite was the top left - Bad Dog Cafe as it was slightly lighter without so much coconut cream.

    The fish they traditionally use is wahu, I think, which they described as 'mackerel' but I am uncertain about this and need to do some research as to what we might call this fish ourselves.
    The Bad dog cafe one (the trendy version) was made with Fresh Yellow Fin tuna instead.

    FJL - thanks for stopping by - I hope you continue to enjoy my blog.
