The word poke (rhymes with ‘okay’) means “to cut crosswise into pieces.” This favorite seafood dish on the islands is made with chopped seafood, typically Ahi tuna, marinated in sesame oil and soy sauce and mixed with fresh onion. Today, poke shops and grocery stores around the state serve numerous varieties with different seafoods (like octopus, salmon or mussels) and toppings.
