Poke: Hawaiian-Style Sushi

Japan isn’t the only culture with traditional dishes made from raw fish.  If you’re looking for something different at our Japanese restaurant in Seattle, try ordering up a dish of seafood poke.  This cold dish represents a Hawaiian equivalent of the more recognizable Japanese sashimi.
The Hawaiian word “poke”, pronounced “POH-kay”, translates to “cut”.  The dish is comprised of seafood that has been sliced into small pieces, usually cubes, and coated with seasonings like green onions, kukui nut relish, soy sauce, seaweed, and more.  Poke is one of the few of Hawaii’s traditional dishes that has been embraced outside of Hawaii itself.  Check it out for yourself at I Love Sushi!
