One of my new favorite foods has to be Poke! I was introduced to it earlier this year by Caitie Bear and was instantly hooked. Aulani, in Hawaii, has a Tuna Poke with Avacado Mousse that they are sharing the recipe for. Seeing that it is from Hawaii, this just has to be good! I really would like to go, visit, and taste this dish on property. Since I currently don’t have any Hawaii vacations on my calendar, I will have to stick with attempting this recipe.
Poke means “cut piece” or “small piece.” It is raw fish and is generally served as an appetizer in Hawaii. Quite often it is made with aku (oily tuna), he’e (octopus), or the increasingly popular yellowfin tuna. As it has become more popular poke has also been made with salmon or other shellfish and then seasoned with “poke” seasonings.
This recipe comes from the chef’s at Aulani and also includes a video that was originally shared on the Disney Parks Blog. Try it out and let us know what you think!
