Poke...what's your favorite?

  • 2

As many of you know, poke (pronounced po-kay) is made with several different ingredients more commonly with raw fish, seaweed, and other local seasonings. Poke may also be made with tako (octopus), surimi (imitation crab), mirugai (geoduck clams), ika (squid), etc.. Sam Choy used to have his annual poke contest on the Big Island where contestants would compete for who's recipe was the best. I'm just curious to see what kind of poke people like to eat. I personally like salted aua (milkfish) mixed with limu kohu and ogo, and inamona (roasted kukui nut), and chili pepper. This is basically traditional poke which old Hawaiians ate with poi. Variations using ahi or yellowfin tuna can also be used.

Also, where do you buy your favorite poke from?

  1. Clinton, I am unclear what you are asking about as you commented on the "best poke in honolulu" less than 48 hours ago. Obviously I'm missing something. Thanks

      I guess I'm being redundant? I post on several different sites and I forget what and where I post. Disregard this inquiry. I'm getting old! I'm glad someone is awake...
