Trend alert – Hawaiin Pokē
According to our sources Hawaiian Pokē is the next big stuff in London town. Don’t know what Pokē is? Don’t worry we didn’t have a clue either.
Modern poke typically consists of cubed raw ʻahi (yellowfin tuna) marinated with sea salt, a small amount of soy sauce, inamona (roasted crushed candlenut), sesame oil, limu seaweed, and chopped chili pepper. Other variations of ingredients may include cured heʻe (octopus), other types of raw tuna, raw salmon and other kinds of sashimi, sliced or diced Maui onion, furikake, hot sauce (such as sambal olek), chopped ʻohiʻa (tomato), tobiko (flying fish roe), ogo or other types of seaweed, and garlic.
The selection of condiments has been heavily influenced by Japanese and other Asian cuisines.
Check out these guys in London, called Eat Pokē London. who have been trading at Kerb recently to give you an idea of this traditional Hawaiian salad. It looks super healthy, fresh and totally instagram material with all those beautiful bright bold colours. We’ll be on the lookout for these guys this weekend.
