Hawaiian Ahi Poke

When we went to Hawaii last Autumn we ate a lot of poke, a raw fish salad. We decided to recreate this the other night.

We bought this beautiful Ahi tuna steak from Costco.

Then we did something that seemed almost sacrilegious and cubed it. Place in a bowl.

 Slice and dice all of the other ingredients and add to the fish. Toss together.

With the sesame seeds, place in a small frying pan and toast over medium heat.

Once they are evenly golden they are done. Set aside to cool. Once cool, sprinkle over the fish salad.
The poke was tasty but it lacked a little something...the Aloha spirit. I think things like this just taste better over there due to the fact that you are in paradise! We might make it again if we find nice grade fish that isn't so expensive!

Pat the Ahi dry, then neatly cut it into small 1/2 inch cubes. Place in a bowl. Add the shallots, green onion, soy sauce, sesame oil, chili garlic sauce, and sesame seeds. Gently toss. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate.
