Refreshing tuna poke with avocado, lemon juice, and ogo seaweed, marinated in spicy soy sauce, and sprinkled with sesame seeds.
Today I’m sharing a very popular Hawaiian dish called Ahi Tuna Poke (Pokē) which consists of cubed raw ahi tuna/yellowfin tuna marinated in soy sauce, sesame oil, sea salt, some seaweed, and chili pepper.
Traditional poke consists of sliced fillet served with sea salt, seaweed, and limu, but there are many variations of the modern Poke like my recipe today. My husband loves Poke and we sometimes prepare differently with diced tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, and so on.
I bought this Poke Mix which already includes Ogo seaweed (orognori). If you are vegetarian or don’t eat raw fish, you can easily substitute the tuna with tofu.
