    What a great dish this looks like! Very yum! Where did you and the husband stay in Tahiti? My husband and I are dying to go and always looking for recommendations from reliable sources. Thanks in advance!

      @Bethany @ One Girls Taste on Life, Thanks! Our hotel in Tahiti was not as fabulous as the one in Bora Bora (same with the places in general). In Bora Bora we stayed at the St. Regis and I would highly recommend it despite the high price. The service and beauty was worth every penny. Also, Laurel at True Tahiti is the BEST source for anything and everything for vacations at any Polynesian island. She is an American living in Moorea and helped us book our trip. She was amazing.

  6. GREAT post. You know Josh & I are so jealous of your fabulous trip πŸ™‚ This dish looks incredible. A tropical delight for sure. Hope you are having a great weekend Sabrina

    What do you put in your vanilla tea, or do you drink it black?

    • RhodeyGirlTests

      @Janice, I drink it black. Here I buy the Mighty Leaf brand of vanilla black tea and I also drink it black, but one of my friends puts milk and sugar in it.

  10. What a beautiful place to spend your honeymoon–it’s no wonder it inspired you to create an equally beautiful dish. I’ll be voting for you. Great job!

  18. I totally played around with the idea of doing a Tahitian dish. I was going to do what the Tahitians call ‘ceviche’, which is raw fish in coconut milk. But seeing this home run I am glad I chose another geography. Mine would have paled. Can’t wait to vote you forward. GREG

  30. Maybelles mom

    I have always wanted to go to Tahiti. Thanks for taking me there. Nice #pfb2010

  31. I love coconut in my dishes. This recipe looks good and I love that the list of ingredients is not too long.

    What would you recommend a good substitution for heavy cream? Or is that not an option without changing the taste of the food too much?

    I want to go to Tahiti for my upcoming honeymoon. It just looks like such a tropical dream.

    • RhodeyGirlTests

      @Lea @ Healthy Coconut, I would use whole milk instead of the cream, or even light cream. If you want to go the non dairy route, though, I am not quite sure how to help. I haven’t yet experimented making sauces with non dairy milks.

      If you decide to go to Tahiti please email me any questions! We had the time of our lives and it was completely worth the hefty price tag. It was literally a once in a lifetime experience!

  32. Sounds amazing. But where can I get one of those bungalows in Philly?

  33. Gorgeous photos! This dish looks really delicious – can’t wait to try it!

  34. Oh wow! This looks beautiful. Just voted for you. Also, I can’t help but add you are beautiful nd PLUS you love to cook = awesome. πŸ™‚
