Zesty Tuna and Coconut Milk Dish

We had one of my favorite tuna dish (second to sashimi) for dinner tonight and i thought that i would just share it with you guys because before i got married, i dont think ive ever tasted this dish.

we have several fruit and vegetable plants in our backyard, among them a Coconut tree and a Kamias tree. our household help uses these two to cook up a delicious tuna dish.

the tuna is bathed in sweet coconut milk and flavored with the zesty kamias

this is delicious over hot steamed rice!  smother your rice with the thick sweet and tangy sauce, add a piece of tuna and chow!

now id like to know, who among your have ever tasted this dish before?

  1. Dear Friend!
    Tuna, of course is widely consumed in Japan, and Shizuoka, my Prefecture is really big on it!
    But tuna in coconut milk is certainly a first!
    Certainly more ethnic than Jaapanese food!
    Thanks for sharing!

    (in case WordPress takes you to my fantasy Blog!)

  3. I have NOT had this yet! Please, please share the recipe – it looks so wonderful. I’m embarrassed to admit that I don’t know what kamia is.

    • hi tangled noodle!
      kamias is a cylindrical fruit, used as a souring agent for some pinoy dishes like paksiw, or sinigang (if you’ve had those before). ill take some photos and post the recipe soon!
