That fish looks fresh and making me hungry – and it’s still morning. Makes me want to head to the beach and go fishing this afternoon. Back to the topic and have to say we may add this to our site so readers can enjoy another hawaiin fish recipe.

Best Juicers on 1.15.2012

wow, I’m actually not even one for ahi…but I’ve got to say, this looks (and sounds) great!

Melissa on 1.14.2012

You just HAD to post a raw fish recipe when I’m pregnant. ;-) The ahi cravings are strong!!!

Lien on 1.14.2012

you can’t call it Hawaiian, unless there is limu (seaweed). You recipe is missing one of the most important cultural ingredients. Limu is available dry in markets. Also, dry poke mixes, which include seaweed, are available in major Asian markets, e.g. Uajimaya.

Kiani on 1.14.2012

In Hawaii, we eat many different kinds of poke. This is a gret recipe. You can also do varitions with sriracha sauce, avocado, tako, etc.

when i was in hawaii, i was addicted to this stuff. there is a shop in waikiki that specializes in it. i would eat in between surf breaks……every day. i even brought it on the plane with me to eat on the way home rather than that nasty plane food. it is good, nothing but protein and low in calories, which is perfect for surfing all day long.

i make it for myself stateside, but it is not the same.

This looks absolutely beautiful! I bet the flavors are out of this world!

Susan on 1.13.2012

I discovered poke on a trip to Maui for my 50th birthday last May and like Carlie, have been dreaming about it ever since. Couldn’t get enough of it there, and have been wanting to make it in my own kitchen ever since. Thanks for the inspiration!

Carlie on 1.13.2012

I love poke! I have dreamed about it everyday since I left Hawaii. Thank you for sharing this recipe : )

Allyn on 1.13.2012

This looks to die for! Of course, my husband and I love anything Hawaiian or Asian inspired, since he’s Hawaiian Chinese and I’m, well, a southern girl who loves ethnic food.
Will have to make this asap!

All Good in Mommyhood on 1.13.2012

This looks so refreshing – love it. Can’t wait to have the kind of weather for this food.

We eat poke all the time in Hawaii. So yummy. I’m a bit of a wimp though, I like mine slightly flash fried.

Heather (Heather's Dish) on 1.13.2012

i’ve seen this a million times and never thought to make it myself…it looks so fresh and delicious!
