There are a lot of reasons that people love Hawaii: beaches, sand, surfing, the sun, more beaches, the people. But when you think about Hawaiian food, what do you think about? If you’re not thinking about poke, then you’re missing out.

 

               Poké has been popular for decades, but it’s flavor and appeal is starting to cross the ocean to the mainland (and farther), infiltrating restaurants and home cooking, too. But what is poke?

 

               In a nutshell, poke is diced, raw, sushigrade fish or seafood—however the protein isn’t a hard and fast rule and in fact it can be made with vegetarians in mind, too. With that as its based, of course it’s a natural that poke is healthy and low in calories. And its increased popularity has also coincided with a rise in bowl-based dishes.

Poke Hawaiian for “to section” or “to slice or cut”) is a raw fish salad served as an appetizer in Hawaiian cuisine, and sometimes as a main course. Traditional forms are aku (an oily tuna) and he’e (octopus). He’e (octopus) poke is usually called by its Japanese name “Tako” Poke, except in places like the island of Ni’ihau where the Hawaiian language is spoken. Increasingly popular ahi poke is generally made with yellowfin tuna. Adaptations may feature raw salmon or various shellfish as a main ingredient served raw with the common “poke” seasonings.
