Plant-based "Tuna" Tartare with Young Coconut

This plant-based "tuna" tartare uses young coconut meat for a vegan fish replacement. Let's start with the best thing about this plant-based and vegan recipe.. it doesn't start with having to crack a coconut! Copra coconut meat is already hand-scooped out of the young coconut for you. Overall, coconut meat makes a great fish substitution because of it's texture and ability to pick up flavors of any recipe. For instance, this plant-based "tuna" tartare recipe has hints of spicy sriracha and citrus.
