Basic Ahi Poke Recipe

  • 4 cups ahi (yellowfin tuna, sashimi grade) diced
  • 1/2 cup onion, minced
  • 1/4 cup green onion, minced
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • Hawaiian salt and pepper to taste
This is the most basic recipe for ahi poke, served as a pupu or appetizer at most luaus and Hawaiian dinners.

Season ahi with Hawaiian salt. Add all ingredients, mix well then chill.  Toss well without smashing fish chunks.

You can get fancy by adding toasted sesame seeds, chili pepper flakes, chopped minced seaweed (ogo), and oyster sauce etc.  Poke is redefined everyday!!

Poke is such a simple dish but like Foodland Hawaii, the variations can go over 31 flavors as in ice cream!!  LOL


i love mine with a nice hot bowl of steaming white rice with the cold freshly made ahi poke!!  :9  mmmmmmmm
