Poke (pronounced poh-keh), a raw-fish salad, is like the hamburger of Hawaii, ubiquitous at family gatherings, parties, tailgates, and supermarket delis across the islands. I've seen the Hawaiian word poke translated variously as "to chop" or "to cut crosswise," in reference to the way in which the fish is cut, so perhaps it's more accurate to say that poke is like the chopped salad of Hawaii.

Seared Ahi Tuna Salad I used to be intimated to cook tuna, but now I find it to be the easiest fish to cook. I was always afraid to undercook or overcook it. But, you actually don’t have to worry about under or overcooking it, because all you want is that nice sear with a raw middle, which literally takes a couple of minutes.  The seared tuna is so flavorful with the tangy and salty marinade made of ginger, garlic, soy sauce, and fresh lemon and lime juice.
