I opened the bottle of your vanilla extract last weekend to bake some cookies and the difference in taste is extraordinary." – Judy

Poisson Cru


Poisson Cru



1 pound fresh Ahi Tuna, diced or cut in thin slices

1/2 cup carrots, shredded

1/2 cup scallions, thinly sliced

1/2 cup tomatoes, diced, plus slices or cherry tomatoes for garnish

1/2 cup cucumber, small dice

1/2 cup red bell pepper, small dice

1/4 cup lemon or lime juice, freshly squeezed

1/21 teaspoon Rain’s Choice Tahitian Vanilla Extract (or to taste)

salt and pepper to taste

parsley or chives for garnish


Mix the tuna and lemon or lime juice together with salt and pepper.

I was given a small bottle of Rain’s Choice in a gift basket and I have been hooked ever since. The flavor makes all of my baking so much better! I will never use grocery store vanilla again!
