This delicious ceviche is inspired by the Polynesian-style raw fish salads Peter Gordon grew up with in New Zealand. Chunks of fresh tuna are marinaded in lime juice, then tossed in a vibrant coconut and coriander dressing just before serving. This recipe is from Peter Gordon's book Savour: Salads for all Seasons.

1 red onion, halved and very thinly sliced
1/2 tsp lime zest, finely grated
1/2 red chilli, finely chopped

Drain the juices from the fish. Toss gently with the onion mixture, coconut milk, mango, coriander and spring onion. Cover and place in the fridge for 5 minutes
100ml of coconut milk
1/2 mango, peeled and thinly sliced
