[oomph] eats. poke salad.

come to any local gathering and you're guaranteed to find poke...among many other local favorites. while poke (po-keh) is usually associated with fresh cubed ahi, you can make it with almost anything today...tofu, lobster, fishcake, octopus, and one of my favorites, crab. all you need is a few ingredients to get that signature poke sauce, and you're minutes away from a healthy dish.

i had some leftover (store bought) imitation crab and fishcake poke from this past weekend and it was the perfect topping
for a fresh green salad.

greens from our garden.
i added sliced cabbage for crunch, then drizzled with olive oil.
top with your favorite poke.
a healthy lunch.

most recipes will be some version of this:

1-2 lbs. fresh ahi tuna (or your favorite seafood), cubed
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
1/2 cup chopped green onions
toasted sesame seeds
hawaiian salt to taste
red crushed pepper flakes, optional
chopped ginger and/or garlic, optional
chopped macadamia nuts, optional
toss ingredients, chill and serve.

  1. We call imitation crab, seafood sticks, over here in England...and they have to write seafood flavoured on them! They should be gross, but I LOVE them! Will have to try your recipe xx

  5. This looks so delicious. Poke grows wild all over the place in my area, but I always worry when I find it because I don't know what pesticides might have been sprayed in the area.
