Do not clean the fish.
Wrap the tuna in dampened banana leaves or wet gunny sacks.
Place in a pit of hot stones, cover with ashes a foot deep, then place a layer of earth 6 inches deep over the ashes.
After about 6 hours, build a fire of oak charcoal on top of the pit and let it burn down for about 3 hours.
Combine the sauce ingredients and simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring constantly.
Now you are ready to dig out the tuna.
With a shovel, place the steaming tuna on a big wooden plank, peel off the wrappings and skin.
Feed the innards to the dog or to any guests un-appreciative of your efforts.
The pieces of tuna are eaten Poly.
