Ahi Poke

Ahi Poke is an easy-to-prepare Hawaiian seaweed recipe you can try at home. Seriously, I haven't tried this recipe but borrowed it from our Hawaiian guy in the family, Pat Vierra, Pinky's hubby. Since Pat hasn't had the time to put the recipe on video, I've taken the liberty of including the recipe video from Ty Mahler of Roy's Restaurant.

If you love sashimi, you'll surely love the way Hawaiians prepare their fresh tuna! So get that Hawaiian shirt out of the closet, play the theme of Hawaii Five-O and hula your way to the kitchen - Aloha!

What you need
    8 ounces fresh ahi fillet, diced 3/4 inch
    1/2 cup Maui onion or red onion, chopped
    1/2 cup ogo (red/brown seaweed)
    2 stalks green onion, sliced
    1 tsp. Sesame oil
    2 tsp. Soy sauce
    3/4 tsp. Hawaiian rock salt (coarse sea salt)

What to do
Mix all the ingredients together and refrigerate overnight. The next day, serve on a bed of greens and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.

You can also serve this immediately after mixing.
