Poke: Celebrating National Seafood Month 2012

One of my favorite seafood dishes is poke.  In Hawaii, poke is served as a appetizer or pupu.    Everyone has their favorite recipe and hence why there are so many varieties in Hawaii, esp if you visit Alicia's Market, Poke Stop, Tanioka's and even Foodland.

In celebrating National Seafood Month 2012, here's my favorites pokes:

 The Famous Wasabi Masago Ahi Poke

My first stop after I leave the airport...

Sweet Onion Ahi Poke

Love Maui Onions, so sweet...

Sea Asparagus Ahi Poke

I love sea asparagus!
If you've never had them, they're salty
with a nice crunch.

On the mainland, they're called "sea beans"
but the quality is not the same.

Tako Poke

Just wanted something different

Since I can't find a good one at home, I just make my own...
 Cubed yellowfin tuna
(A simple tuna and octopus recipe here)

Add in some soy sauce and a dash of sesame oil
with your favorite condiments.

In this case, I used masago, sweet onions,
and green onions in this one.
You can use whatever you like and have.
