Tuvalu Coconut Tuna is a classic example of Tuvaluan seafood dishes at their finest!

Tuvalu Coconut Tuna Recipe-

  1. In a large skillet or wok, heat up some vegetable oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Sauté the onions for a few minutes, until fragrant and translucent.
  3. Now add in the Scotch Bonnet pepper(s), curry powder, garlic and reduce the heat to medium. Cook until softened and your whole house is filled with the enticing aroma.
  4. Now stir in the coconut milk, and then the green onions and sugar snap peas.
  5. Add the tuna steaks into the mix, and soy sauce to taste—personally I like a lot of soy sauce, it really sets the rest of the flavors off nicely.
  6. Cook until the tuna is nicely browned on the outside and as done in the center as you like it.
  7. Traditionally Tuvalu Coconut Tuna is served with rice, and often coconut rice (Rice cooked in half-and-half coconut milk and water). You can also garnish the steaks with fresh parsley or cilantro.
