1/2 cup red bell pepper, cut half, roasted, skin and seeds off
1/2 cup coconut cream or milk

red siling labuyo and green chili, finely chopped
coconut milk
radish, thinly sliced
zest of calamansi or dayap (optional)

Procedure:

FISH:
Slice the raw fish into small cubes. To thinly slice, freeze the fish for a while to make it firmer and easier to cut. Keep fish refrigerated before serving.

RED BELL PEPPER PURÉE:
Put everything in a blender and purée until smooth. A mortar and pestle can also be used to mash the roasted bell peppers and ginger. Add the rest of the ingredients in a bowl. Season with sea salt.

GARNISH:
Mix the tuna with the puree and place in serving spoons.
Add the chopped onions, green onions, red and green chilies, and lastly, some fresh cilantro sprigs. Serve immediately.
