Wednesday’s Helping: Variations of Poke

Freshness and versatility make all the difference

The recipe ingredients for poke present an endless array of spices and seasonings.   We’ve enjoyed poke that’s flavored with mustard, brown sugar, a pinch of coarse salt, and sliced yellow onion.  Also, try black pepper, salt, and minced cilantro.  Chopped nori and avocado cubes can also be yummy additions.  The simple ingredients will go far so don’t be surprised.  The other key is to make sure that the fish incorporated is as fresh as possible.  Therefore, the fish should not smell or possess discoloration.  Fresh tuna and red salmon appear to be used commonly but we’ve also heard of shrimp poke.
