Poke (pronounced POH-kay) is the Hawaiian version of Japanese sashimi (combining the Hawaiian and Japanese taste for raw fish). In Hawaiian, poke means “cut piece” or “small piece.” It’s bite-size pieces of raw fish doused in seasonings. The fish for poke is served raw or sometimes lightly seared or fried. I like poke and it’s an adventure to try all the different kinds. Pictured is ahi poke, or yellow fin tuna.

    Did you make this yourself, or buy it somewhere?

      I know so little about poke that i don’t dare try to make it yet, it is available every where, fish markets, grocery stores even some convenience stores. It comes in so many varieties, I want to taste them all.
