Homemade Hawaiian Style Poke
Poke, pronounced (poh-KAY), began with fisherman who would season leftover fish pieces and eat it as a snack.

Contrary to popular belief, traditional poke does not contain any soy sauce.  Instead, it was seasoned with only Hawaiian salt, seaweed and ground candlenut meat.

Throughout the years as poke became increasingly more popular, the dish has taken a life of its own.  Modern poke can be found to include avocado, sriracha, mushrooms, masago, and many other different variations.

My personal favorite is still the simple and traditional way which includes just a few ingredients including ahi, Coarse Sea Salt, Sesame Oil, Seaweed and chili pepper.

The mixture is just enough to bring out the wonderful flavors of the fish without overpowering it.

You can eat poke straight out of the bowl or use other low-carb/keto accompaniments such as baked low carb tortilla chips, pork rinds or just on top of some fresh greens.

Best of all, poke is a low-carb/keto treat that is simple and easy to make!

For this recipe, the special ingredients you would need to pick up are Seaweed Mix, Sesame Oil, Coarse Sea Salt, Toasted Sesame Seed, Togarashi and sushi/sashimi grade yellowfin/ahi tuna.  You can pick up most of these on Amazon or a local Asian supermarket.

Note – for the tuna, you can use either fresh or frozen/saku blocks but just make sure it does state ‘sushi/sashimi grade’ on the package.
