Classic Ahi Poke (no need seaweed)  

  • 1 pound fresh tuna steak (in Hawaii, we call this “ahi”) cut into 1/2″ cubes
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 cup fresh limu seaweed, rinsed and chopped (if available)
  • 2 tablespoons “shoyu” (aka “soy sauce”)
  • 2 green onions, finely sliced (including the green part)
  • 1 Hawaiian (or thai) chili pepper, trimmed and minced* (or 1/2 teaspoon red chili pepper flakes

Combine all ingredients and mix well.  Refrigerate for an hour, or until ready to serve.

As we say in Hawaii: “Have?” or “No have”. If you “no have” seaweed, don’t worry. Hopefully, this poke will still satisfy until you come back.

*Always use caution handling hot peppers, best not to touch cut peppers, or use cooking gloves.

When spending the day in Waikiki or Honolulu, plan to stop at Nico’s Fish Market for lunch or dinner (Mon-Sat) where you can get a fantastically fresh fish dinner with all the trimmings at a fraction of the cost of a fancy restaurant! Gourmet meets “plate lunch” style. Lyon-born Chef Nicolas “Nico” Chaize is a master of French cuisine and has given it his own Hawaiian twist. Covered outdoor seating, very casual. Excellent bar! Tip: closed Sundays. Details
