Poke Smoked Salmon

Hawaiian Fish Salad
Low in Calories, Higher in Salt

Cooking Asian dishes with onionsPoke is the Hawaiian name for a Fish Salad, normally made with raw Fish, and so a bit like Japanese Sashimi or Chirashi Sushi.  It is usually more highly seasoned however.

Poke is rather low in calories, but due to the types of Fish used and seasonings, it may sometimes be a bit high in Salt content.

Poke is one of the important main dishes in Hawaiian cuisine.  Not everyone will care for the raw fish — just as with Japanese Sushi and Sashimi — but most people seem to enjoy this recipe, which uses Smoked Salmon.
