Developed by the Japanese population residing in the tropical paradise, poke is traditionally served as an appetiser in the form of a glossy helping of raw fish (usually Yellowfin tuna) rendered with soy sauce, green onions and sesame oil presented alongside condiments such as wasabi and seaweed. A celebration of both Japanese and Pacific flavours, this fresh summer dish has been popping up at a number of local restaurants including Kindred (pictured), The Culpeper, Oaken and the recently opened Shaka Bowl — an eatery dedicated solely to poke.
