Hawaiian Tuna Poke

Poke is a salad with raw tuna, which we originally discovered a few years ago researching the cuisine of Hawaii and fell in love with the easy preparation and wonderful fresh flavours. In the last year, it has taken the States by a storm and is now making it’s way to the UK. It is important to use very fresh tuna – this might be a little pricey, but it is such a rich meat, you do not need too much.
