Ahi Poke

When we went to visit my brother who lives in Kauai, this quickly became my mother’s favorite dish on the island. When we returned home, she didn’t waste any time recreating her favorite dish, and the many happy memories that go with it.

1 1/2 lbs. ahi (tuna)
1 c limu manauea (seaweed), blanched
1/2 c chopped onion
1/2 c chopped green onions
2 Tbs. inamona (prepared ground kukui nut)
1 tsp. coarse chili pepper powder
1 tspHawaiian salt
2 tsp. sesami oil
1 tsp soy sauce

Cut ahi in 1-inch cubes.  In a bowl combine all ingredients including ahi, toss gently.  Chill.
I just buy the seaweed in the package.  This is a favorite appetizer of  my son who lives on Kauai.  He will fry what’s left the next day over brown rice.  This is so good dipped in a combination of equal amounts of Wasabi and soy sauce, and maybe sesami seeds.  This may not be the healthiest thing, but I love it.
