Poke (/poʊˈkeɪ/), also called Poke bowl is essentially diced raw fish served on top of rice and other ingredients, and is one of the main dishes of Native Hawaiian cuisine. The word “poke” comes from the verb “to section, slice, or cut” in the Hawaiian language. Traditional poke seasonings such as soy sauce, green onions and sesame oil are influenced by Japanese and other Asian cuisines. Furikake (savoury rice seasoning), fish roe, wasabi and seaweed are some of the other types of seasoning you can find in different poke variations. There has recently been many modern interpretations of poke with many eateries offering a wide array of ingredients such as vegetables and seasonings for their customers to choose from. Regardless, each poke bowl usually consists of a beautiful medley of flavours, textures and colours.
