Game fish poke

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 alternative to meat. 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;


Serves: 2

1 cup 5mm cubed fresh game fish

1 tbs light soy sauce

1 tbs Japanese furikaki spice (follow this link for the recipe)

1 tbs finely sliced 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
