Shootz...for da bruddah who wen ask for da recipee for Shoyu Poke. Ahi, kaku (cuda...one of my favorites for this), nenue (old school Kupuna kine poke), Ono (wahoo)! K'Den :
Yeah, no problem brah.
Ahi Shoyu Poke
1 lb. fresh ahi (cuda, wahoo, yellowtale...any mellow, buttery raw fish) cut into cubed, bite-size pieces...about 3/4" - 1"
1/4 cup shoyu (soy sauce)
1/4 cup chopped green onions (tops included)
1/4* cup chopped Maui onion (or yellow onion)
2 tsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. grated fresh ginger
1 chili pepper, cored, seeded and diced ( I use only Hawaiian chilis, or no chilis at all...optional)
Hawaiian salt ( you can use course sea salt, not rock salt, but coarse sea salt)
2 tsp. toasted sesame seeds
Limu (Hawaiian seaweed) is used but I've not seen it available outside of Hawaii, so I don't add any when I make this on the mainland.
In a large bowl, sprinkle salt onto cubes of fish and hand mix around. The salt will eventually "melt" into fish. Then combine all the ingredients, and mix lightly. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours before eating.
Eaten one cube at a time. Enjoy
Best eaten with Waipio Valley Poi!
