Welcome to POKE KING - Hawaiian Poke Sauce and Marinade. Poke (pronounced POH-kay) is served in most Hawaiian homes and restaurants as a side dish, and no gathering in Hawaii would be complete without a few bowls of poke. In Hawaiian, poke means "cut piece" or "small piece." Poke is a raw salad with bite-size pieces of raw fish doused in seasonings. For centuries, Hawaiian fishermen cut their catch of raw fish into cubes and seasoned it with whatever ingredients they had. Modern versions make use of seasonings brought by the many different cultures of the Islands, such as soy sauce, red sea salt, limu seaweed, green onions, tomatoes, red pepper and chilies. Poke is so common in the Hawaiian culture that you can stop at a local grocery store and choose from several freshly made varieties.
The most common main ingredient in poke is yellow fin tuna, but this can be substituted with salmon, octopus, squid or any sushi grade white fish you might have available. We encourage you to use POKE KING as a marinade for your favorite meats, seafood and vegetables. POKE KING is the perfect sauce for stir frying or as a condiment to spice up any vegetable medley. POKE KING supplies the sauce and with your imagination the possibilities are endless.
