Ahi Poke (pronounced PO-key) Salad is one of Joel’s favorite foods. There was once a local Hawaiian themed restaurant that Joel would stop at weekly and bring home Poke. When that restaurant went “out of business” it was a problem! The only solution (according to Joel) was to be able to make Poke at home. So, although we do not have it weekly anymore, when we do find fresh sashimi-grade ahi, we bring it home and throw together some of our favorite flavors to add to the ahi.
For the most part, the ingredients below are many that we combine together, but this is certainly one of those dishes that you can customize to your own taste and mix any combination of these or other ingredients you might enjoy.
We serve the Poke as a snack with chips or crackers or sometimes we make it more of a meal and serve it on top of rice or a salad. For our Gr8 Luau themed dinner in 2005 we served it as an appetizer and it was a hit!
