Feel free to tweak this any way you want, including adding more coconut milk. My wife is on record as preferring twice as much as I used here, which will give you a looser but much more luxurious mixture. This also needs a good amount of salt to bring the flavors together, so taste and adjust carefully. You could certainly use other salty seasonings like soy and/or fish sauce, but you already knew that. Serve with taro, wonton, or sweet potato chips.

Yummy! Added toasted black sesame seeds and then served on top of wonton triangles sprayed with olive oil spray sprinkled with white sesame seeds toasted about 5 minutes in the oven. Put a sprig of cilantro on each slice and serve! Rave reviews from guests. Read More

We had high hopes for this but found it a waste of a good sushi-grade Ahi Tuna steak. We love Poison Cru and our recipe for that. It's just like being back in Tahiti. That dish also uses fresh Ahi lime juice and coconut milk but it highlights the fresh tuna rather than masks it with over-potent flavors blended together. We had to try this but we won't make it again. Read More
