It is safe to say, the poke craze has hit the continental US. So what is it? (By the way it’s pronounced “po-kay”) Poke is a raw fish salad that Hawaiians have been making for centuries, even if they didn’t call it by the specific name of “poke” at the beginning. Hawaii is a vastly multicultural place, and each cultural group and even each family had their own special version. So there are Hawaiian interpretations, Japanese interpretations and more. Tuna seems to be the most traditional main ingredient, but there are versions out there that use salmon, shrimp or even tofu.
