Dopo tante patate dolci, un po' di pesce :-)
Bella questa insalata e sicuramente buonissima. Grazie per essere arrivata sino a qui e inizia a preparare le valigie per l'Ecuador :-)


I guess we shouldn't be surprised to find something like ceviche in the Pacific, but I was intrigued by the addition of coconut milk—sounds very nice!


Questa ricetta embra così fresca e profumata...davvero da provare!
Biona giornata!!

Simona Carini

Anche io avevo adocchiato le patate dolci, poi ho pensato che cosi' nel mezzo dell'oceano il pesce deve essere buono. Valigie pronte: ho gia' una ricetta in mente. Devo trovare gli ingredienti.

Simona Carini

You are right, Frank. Since we started from Samoa, my fellow "travelers" and I have learned a lot about using coconut and its derivates in cooking—ingredients quite foreign to Italian cuisine. I made a soup with the coconut milk left over from this recipe and it was a hit. Also, I now regularly use coconut butter when I bake scones.

Simona Carini

Si', Paola, e a parte ricordarsi di mettere a marinare il pesce qualche ora prima, e' anche facile e veloce.


Thank you for this Cook the Books post.

Simona Carini

You are welcome, Rachel.

Debra Eliotseats

Very fresh and delicious looking dish, Simona.

Simona Carini

Thank you, Debra :)


We love our fish here in Hawaii, raw or not, and I want to try this version with the coconut milk. Though I'll add sliced starfruit instead of melon as that is falling all over the place right now. Good choice Simona.

Simona Carini

Falling starfruit is not a bad problem to have, Claudia. I think it would be a lovely addition to this dish. And you certainly have a number of choices when it comes to fresh fish.

Alicia (foodycat)

It looks very good! I've had a Tongan version that is similar, but I really like the melon addition.

Simona Carini

Thank you, Alicia. I recommend the melon: it balances out the tomatoes and makes the dish lighter.

I first had Kokoda when we were in Fiji and the Chief of the village held a cooking class. He provided us with his recipe and I made it when we hosted our after dive party. It was a great success. I love that you took your inspiration from Marcus' childhood fishing adventures.

Simona Carini

Wow, a cooking class in Fiji! That must have been an in fun experience, Wendy.
