Fresh ahi tuna poke (poe-kay) is loved throughout Hawaii, combining sashimi grade fish with sesame oil, gluten free tamari, and a few simple seasonings for a deliciously easy meal. Served over sushi rice and surrounded by crisp vegetables and spicy edamame, poke is quickly winning fans here on the mainland as a fast and healthy meal.


Ahi Poke
