• ahi poke on a plate

Poké (pronounced poh-KAY) is a traditional Hawaiian dish consisting of cubed raw ahi (tuna) marinated in soy sauce, sesame oil and spices. When you visit Hawai‘i Island, you’ll find a variety of poké at the grocery store–and in fine dining restaurants such as Brown’s Beach House. It’s also easy to make at home!
