A popular Hawaiian dish, poke is a cubed raw fish salad. Serve and eat the day you make it.
1 -2 pounds fresh sushi grade tuna or salmon, chopped into ½ inch cubes
1 medium tomato, chopped
1⁄2 cup sweet onion, finely chopped
1 tsp sesame oil
1⁄2 tsp crushed red pepper
2 tbsp soy sauce
Place in a large bowl and gently toss with tomatoes, onions, oil, and red pepper. Add soy sauce. Chill until serving and spoon onto endive spears or invite guests to scoop poke with taco chips or taro chips if you can find them. If you don’t like raw fish, use smoked salmon to make the salad and reduce the soy sauce to taste (smoked salmon can be salty).
