Hawaiian poke is simply an island version of ceviche. Very different in taste but same idea. it was definitely the best food I had my entire time on the island. I assume it was because of the freshness of the daily catch. That’s one amazing thing about Kauai.
On a lazy morning when I decided to sleep in, Batman was up way before the crack of down and jumped on a boat for some deep see fishing. Men, they love getting dirty like that.
Best part Batman is a master at ceviche and come to find out also poke. He caught a big ahi tuna which was more than enough to share with everyone on the boat.
Now for the poke. It was the best poke I’ve ever had. Here’s the tricky thing: I don’t really have a recipe for you, because Batman also works with my formula: a pinch of this, a splash of that, a sprinkle of sesame seeds. So you will have to listen to your taste buds as you go, keeping in mind the secret to a great Poke recipe is really the freshness of the fish.
I had this for dinner at least five times, just like that on top of a bed of organic baby greens. Perfection I tell you.
