When you’re in Hawaii, there’s a good very chance you’ll see poke (pronounced po-keh) on the menus and in the grocery stores. Next, you may be wondering what it is. Poke is fresh, raw ahi tuna cut into cubes and usually mixed with diced onion, seaweed and spices. I’m not much of an adventurous sushi/sashimi partaker and even I have an appreciation for poke. It melts in your mouth.
