hawaii eats

DSC01871 Most of us in Hawaii love poke (po-kay).

Pieces of raw fish, usually some type of onion, some limu (a type of seaweed), a little shoyu.

There are many variations today, lots include mayo.

My cousin P made these two types the other night for our pupu (appetizer).

This deconstructed poke, she said she had something similar at Stage restaurant.

The sauce for this one was on the sweeter side.

Besides the fish, this one had sliced avocado, red onion, cilantro and limu.
DSC01872 She also made this shoyu poke with a little cilantro, limu and red onion.

The seasoning for this one was more standard--not sweet at all.

Ono-licious! (what we say in Hawaii, really delicious)
