  • 500 grams raw tuna cut into small cubes
  • 3 limes
  • 1 carrot grated
  • 1 small cucumber grated
  • 2 small tomatoes very ripe, cut into cubes or grated
  • 2 spring onions finely chopped
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • fresh coriander
  • salt and pepper to season
  • fresh chili pepper (optional)


  • Marinate the tuna in the juice of the 3 limes for about half an hour in the fridge.
  • Meanwhile, grate the carrots, tomatoes (if you can be bothered), and cucumber. Squeeze out the excess water, and slice the spring onions finely.
  • Remove the excess juice from the fish, then add it to a large bowl with the veggies.
  • Top with the coconut milk, season with salt and pepper and some fresh coriander. I also love to add some fresh chili pepper!
  • Let it all sit in the fridge for about an hour before serving.
