Pronounced "po-kay," this traditional Hawaiian dish [1] combines bite-size pieces of raw tuna with a special blend of seasonings. Most poke contains soy sauce and sesame oil, and other ingredients include sesame seeds, green onions, and chiles. Though it is a prized local specialty, poke's popularity has spread nationwide — I recently enjoyed some at
Sam's Chowder House [2].
