Shoyu Poke A'U - Shoyu Poke made with marlin fillets
Why I Love This Recipe
For those of you who are not familiar with the Hawaiian language you might wonder what poke means...it means to slice or to cut into small bite-size pieces, also refers to a traditional Hawaiian dish of raw seafood. This poke is made with a'u (Pacific Blue Marlin Sailfish).
Ingredients You'll Need
3 pounds a'u fillet
3/4 cup shoyu (can also use low sodium soy sauce)
1 teaspoon chili pepper flakes
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 tablespoon sesame oil
3/4 cup chopped green onions
1 medium round onion, sliced thinly
Cut a'u fillet into strips then into 3/4 inch poke. Combine shoyu, pepper, sesame seeds, sesame oil, green and round onions; add poke a'u. Mix well. Serve chilled.
