Poke Bowl

Poke is diced raw fishserved either as an appetizer or as a main course and is one of the main dishes of Native Hawaiian cuisine. Poke literally means ‘to cut crosswise into pieces’. It is believed that poke was first prepared by native Polynesians centuries before Western travelers arrived on the Islands. Initially, it was made with chopped up raw reef fish, seasoned with sea salt and sea weed and combined with crushed candlenut. Salting of the fish was for both flavor and, more importantly, preserving the fish. Most historians agree that it wasn’t until the 1960’s and 70’s that the name ‘poke’ was given to the dish we currently recognize as poke.
