Where Da Poke Grindz?

A comic: 'Have you had poke before? It's raw fish -- Ahi', 'Oh, no...', 'That's right girl! ʻOno!'

In Japanese, “poke” is translated literally into “cut” and “slice.” Served as tender chunks of uncooked fish, often ʻahi tuna, and marinated in sesame oil, oyster sauce, and shoyu (soy sauce), poke makes for the quintessential beach treat, potluck contribution, or pau hana (after work) entrée. Diverse recipes add Hawaiian chili pepper, raw chopped yellow and green onion, wasabi, avocado, and seaweed such as ogo or limu. Order it in bowl dished over rice, and you’ll be asked whether you’d like furikake (a sweet n’ salty seaweed seasoning) and shoyu – if you dig flavor, the answer should always be yes.
