Poke' a Local Favorite Dish

Click here to see another photo of the poke' dish on facebook

Some may say, "Ewwwwwww, that's raw fish!!!" A local favorite when the fish is cubed and diced and served raw, it is called poke'. Not pronounced poke, but p-oh-keh.  If you like raw fish or are adventurous, here is the recipe that I used:

1. 1/2 lb. of the freshest ahi/tuna, can substitute with marlin (but not quite the same)
2. Dash of sesame oil
3. 1/4 cup chopped green onions
4. 1/2 cup soba sauce
5. 1/2 cup soy sauce
6. Dash of tobasco

Dice the fish into 3/4" cubes. Keep the fish chilled in a separate container. Mix the soba sauce and soy sauce together then add the tobasco sauce to taste and lastly a dash of sesame oil. When ready to serve add the fish to the sauce and sprinkle the green onions on top. Mix the fish with the sauce only when ready to serve or it may ruin the fish.
