We love poke which is basically fresh fish cubed seasoned with salt, sesame oil and seaweed. There are many recipes out there for poke. When the female half was a little girl, poke was made mostly out of ahi (tuna) or aku (tuna also) with the above ingredients and maybe some green onions or onion slices and a little bit of chili pepper. Now, you can get not only ahi or aku poke, but tofu poke, imitation crab poke, cucumber poke, tako (octopus) poke, swordfish poke, and more. You can make it as fancy or simple as you like. We generally have poke at least once a week. Poke is something you find in most supermarkets and at almost every lu'au here in Hawaii.
For a nice addition to a salad, dice up some fresh raw fish of your choice, toss with a little bit of salt and sesame oil (you don't need a lot) and serve over salad with a light fat free dressing. If you want to make your poke a little fancier, add sliced onions, fresh seaweed (or furikake if you don't have fresh seaweed), wasabi, tobiko or masago (both fish eggs).
We don't care for the shoyu (soy sauce) poke sold here, stores tend to use older fish for shoyu poke and it often times is too salty for us. Here are some poke recipes (most of them probably don't need as much sesame oil as they mention and if they aren't Dukan'd already, they are easily Dukan'd):
Classic Ahi Poke
|Lomi Salmon (or Lomi Lomi Salmon)|
Lomi Salmon is another item you will always find at a lu'au in Hawaii. It's a very simple recipe...we don't have it often since the male half doesn't care for raw onions or tomatoes. The female half decided to have some with her lunch (see photo below). Here is a recipe for lomi salmon. Lomi Salmon is definitely Dukan friendly.
