Poke is a staple in our home, and undoubtedly a favorite amongst many local families! We all have our favorite recipes but for this post, Ocean puts a spin on your average poke!
Fresh ‘ahi topped with a little fresh ginger, green onion, traditional seasonings & sizzling oil - this is a recipe for seared poke perfection! Oh, and if you love ginger chicken, we're sure you'll enjoy this too.
1/2 Pound Fresh ‘Ahi Tuna, Poke Cubed
2 Tsp Inamona
1 Drop Sesame Oil
2 TBL Ginger & Green Onion Mixture*
Sea Salt, to taste
Vegetable Oil, to sear
In a mixing bowl, combine ‘ahi, inamona, sesame oil and sea salt. Transfer into a heat safe bowl or serving dish.
Spread ginger/green onion mixture to top the seasoned ‘ahi. Set aside.
Meanwhile, place a pan on high heat and add vegetable oil. Once oil begins smoking (this will only take a minute or so) carefully drizzle hot oil over the ginger topped ‘ahi. Sizzling will occur and ‘ahi will slightly sear.
Garnish with fresh cilantro, serve, enjoy!
*Ginger/Green Onion Mixture: place equal amounts of crushed fresh ginger and chopped green onion on a cutting board. Sprinkle with sea salt to season. Mince all ingredients while folding together to create a fine mixture.
