Nearly everyone I have asked have told me I need to try poke. Poke is not for everyone, especially those that don’t like sushi as it essentially a raw fish salad of yellowfin tuna or ahi and very similar to another dish I love – ceviche.
So when I went to Roy’s Restaurant and my server Susie told said Roy’s makes some of the best poke on the island I had to try it. It reminds me a lot of ceviche and I haven’t tried enough to know if Roy’s is the best but I liked it so much I looked for a recipe because I need to know how to make poke at home.
I adapted this recipe from one of my favourite food blogs: A Spicy Perspective
2 large sashimi grade Ahi tuna steaks (1 1/2 lbs.)
1/4 cup vidalia onion or another sweet yellow onion, sliced
1/2 cup chopped green onion
3 Tb. soy sauce
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. chili garlic sauce
1 tsp grated ginger
1 Tb. sesame seeds
1. Pat ahi dry and cut into 1/2 inch cubes.
2. Toss in bowl with remaining ingredients.
