Ahi Poke

Spending lots of summers in Hawaii, one of the dishes that I most looked forward to was Poke. Everyone has their own special recipe, but I like the simple ones that highlight ahi, esp since my grandmother knew I love tuna.

Here's a quick Ahi Poke recipe that I use:

2 lbs. Sashimi Grade Yellowfin or Bigeye Tuna
1 pc Octopus
1/4 Maui Onion (or any sweet onion)
3 stalks Green Onions
4 TBS Soy Sauce
Dash chili oil
Hawaiian Salt to taste

Cube tuna and octopus into bite size pieces and add to bowl. Slice Maui Onion and chop green onions and add to bowl. Add soy sauce, chili oil, and Hawaiian Salt.

Refrigerate before serving. If too dry, add more soy sauce.
Remember to keep it cold and enjoy...

Please Note: Wild Bluefin Tuna was NOT used in this dish.
