Diced raw ahi tuna tossed in a simple soy or shoyu sauce and served over sushi rice with whatever other additions you want in this Hawaiian favorite.
I love fish, especially raw fish. Sushi, crudo or poké, call it what you want, I will eat it and love it. When eating raw fish it is so important to buy sushi grade and to make note of how long the store or fishmonger has had it. You don’t want to consume raw fish that has been sitting around in a display case forever. Having a bad experience with raw fish will definitely scar you. That being said, feel free to experiment with what other toppings you put on your poke bowl, I love adding edamame, crispy onions, cilantro or sriracha mayo.
How do I pronounce poke?
Always unsure of how to pronounce poke? Poke is pronounced phonetically as po-kay not like pokémon.
