How good is a Poke Salad really? Here’s how to make one.

Poke salad is a Hawaiian fish salad served as an appetizer and sometimes as the main dish. The word Poke came from the Hawaiian poke (pronounced pow-kee) which means “to slice or cut”. Traditional forms of the poke salad use aku (an oily tuna) and he'e (octopus).

Increasingly popular ahi poke is generally made with yellowfin tuna. Adaptations may feature raw salmon or various shellfish as a main ingredient served raw with the common "poke" seasonings.


Ahi Tuna Poke & Mango Salad Ingredients 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 1 tablespoon ponzu sauce ½ teaspoon prepared wasabi 4 ounces sushi grade tuna, diced in large chunks ½ mango, diced in large chunks ½ cup store-bought seaweed salad ½ teaspoon black sesame seeds 2-3 cups loosely packed spring lettuce mix ½ avocado, sliced ¼ teaspoon pink Hawaiian sea salt Instructions In a small bowl, whisk the vegetable oil, ponzu sauce and wasabi until well blended. Add the tuna, mango and seaweed salad to a bowl and drizzle with 1 tablespoon or so of the dressing. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and stir to coat. In a different bowl, add the lettuce and avocado and top with the tuna mixture. Drizzle with more dressing as desired and sprinkle with Hawaiian sea salt and more sesame seeds. Serve immediately. #pokesalad #tuna #healthyfood #salad #readyforsummer Credits: http://www.foodiecrush.com/poke-tuna-and-mango-salad/

How do you make a poke salad?

Mix together any kind of fish you like (preferably tuna or salmon), minced onion, green onion, ginger, seaweed, macadamia nuts, sesame oil, and red pepper in a mixing bowl. Cover and refrigerate at least one hour, for the flavors to come together. Arrange the lettuce leaves on a serving platter, spoon the fish on top, and garnish with cilantro.
