Appetizer Tuna Recipes:


Ahi Tuna Poke – Hawaiian Poke
Poke (pronounced POH-kay) is served in most Hawaiian homes and restaurants as a side dish, and no gathering in Hawaii would be complete without a few bowls of poke.  In Hawaiian, poke means “cut piece” or “small piece.”  Poke is bite-size pieces of raw fish doused in seasonings.  Poke is actually the Hawaiian version of the elegant Japanese sashimi (a combining of the Hawaiian and Japanese taste for raw fish).  The fish for poke is sometimes even lightly seared or fried.

Spicy Ahi Tuna with Vegetables on Ciabatta Bread
We loved this use of the French spice, Piment d’ Espelette, for a fast and delicious dinner. If you have the Piment d’Espelette Mayonnaise Sauce made up in your refrigerator and the veggies already cut, dinner will be on the table in a matter of minutes. This ahi tuna dish went well with our favorite coleslaw.”
