If you haven’t dug into a bowl of raw fish, seaweed and veggies in a fragrant dressing, let us introduce you to the magic of poké. It’s popularity is on the rise, a natural progression of our collective taste for sushi and sashimi. It originated in Hawaii and was borne out of ease and proximity to the freshest seafood possible. Fisherman would cut the fish into cubes (in Hawaiian, poké means “cut piece”), season and eat, similar to sashimi. It’s not a surprise that poké is gaining in popularity; the bigger surprise is that it’s taken this long.
