If you think Sashimi and Sushi is delicious,
you’ll enjoy this tasty Poke recipe!
In Hawaiian, poke (pronounced pokey) means “cut piece” or “small piece.” Poke is bite-size pieces of raw fish doused in seasonings. We love to serve it over rice, lettuce, in sweet Hawaiian rolls or as an appetizer or salad.
When we were in Hawaii last, we stayed at a condo and ate in alot. Our favorite dinner was Poke from the local grocery market…really fresh and delicious. I found this fresh Sushi grade Tuna at Blue Reef Seafood in Longmont and you can usually find it at your local fish market. To insure this tastes great, make sure it’s fresh and not frozen!
The sauce is one that I use on Sashimi and other raw fish. It’s very tasty…try it soon and Bon Appetit!
