“Tuna poke (pronounced PO-kay) is a traditional Hawaiian dish served at luaus, block parties, and holiday gatherings,” writes Catherine Smart for Boston.com. “Every family has a recipe, which might include jalapeno, nori, or Japanese spice mixtures, such as tograshi and furikake. Simpler versions contain only onion, soy sauce, and sesame oil.”
Ingredients: fresh tuna, soy sauce, sesame oil and seeds, hot sauce, onion, cucumber and avocados. It’s a dish that can take on many variations and flavors – all immediately sending one’s mood and spirit off to beautiful Hawaii.
