Okay Dokay, Let’s Make Poke

Jan. 8, 2020

Poke, a famous Hawaiian dish, is pronounced Po-keh. Humuhumunukunukuapua’a, famous Hawaiian fish, is pronounced… well, let’s skip that one and get back to Poke. Meaning “to chop into pieces”, it is usually found in well-stocked fish counters and fine restaurants. Who would have guessed that you can make this simple yet exotic dish at home any time you like using Sea to Table Wild Alaskan Coho Salmon? It’s a refreshing break from the ordinary, with the salmon being “cooked” only in an acidic marinade, letting the fresh, wild taste of the fish shine through… and it’s on the table in less than 30 minutes. Can you pronounce yum?

1 cup cooked white or brown rice (or any other grain of choice such as quinoa or barley)

½ Cucumber, diced

2 Carrots, ribboned or shredded

½ avocado, sliced

2 sheets nori, crumbled

  1. Stir soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, ginger, scallions, sesame seeds, and chili flakes together. Add the fish and let marinate in the fridge for 15 minutes or up to two hours.
