French Polynesia
Fresh fish and seafood is a staple in Polynesia. The national dish is Poisson Cru, which is fresh-caught raw fish (usually tuna) with diced vegetables marinated in lime and soaked in coconut milk. It is absolutely delicious and can be served with rice. Chevrettes are another popular Tahitian delicacy. These are freshwater shrimp often cooked in a butter sauce or grilled.
