Poke is traditionally a Hawaiian style fish salad. Many cuisines have adapted this for their palates. I know it is not MEAT, but this needs a mention as all meat lovers will find game fish a great change for the palate.
I use anything from Yellowfin Tuna, Yellowtail (Hamachi) or Dorado (Mahi Mahi). Swordfish can also work well.
For the poke you will need the following;
Recipe: 1 cup 5mm cubed fresh game fish 1 tbs light soy sauce 1 tbs Japanese furikaki spice (recipe to follow) 1tbs finely slice green onions 1 tbs finely chopped red onions 1 tsp finely chopped jalapeño 1 tbs olive oil ¼ cup peeled seeded and 5mm diced cucumber Juice of 1 lime Pinch of wasabi Sea salt to taste
Method: Combine all the ingredient in a mixing bowl and mix well to combine. Make sure not to over mix, you want to keep the texture of the ingredients visible and vibrant. Season and set aside.
You can serve this in a bowl on the table as a salad or make individual portions by moulding the poke on your plate. Whichever way you decide to go, I find that serving the poke with a garnish of dressed julienne red cabbage, a type of tropical fruit like pineapple or mango and sushi rice or a crispy wonton skin, rounds this dish of perfectly.
