  • 1 lb. Tuna You can use any fresh fish you like just make sure it is really fresh
  • 1/2 cup Lemon or lime juice fresh squeezed
  • 1/4 onion diced
  • 2 green onions
  • 2 small tomatoes diced
  • 1 cucumber Peeled, seeded and diced
  • 1 cup Coconut milk
  • 1 serrano minced (optional)
  • salt to taste


  • Cut up your fish into bite size pieces
  • Put in a bowl and cover with the fresh squeezed citrus juice
  • Marinate for about 10 minutes or until you finish cutting up the other vegetables. The citrus cooks the diced fish quickly.

  • Refrigerate for about an hour to let all the flavors meld together and serve
