Straight Hawaiian-Style 'Inamona Poke
Recipe of the Week: Straight Hawaiian-Style 'Inamona Poke
Serves 3 as an appetizer
This dish brings back memories of picking limu at La'ie Bay as a child. This is a classic, and as its name indicates, straightforward recipe. Nothing fancy, just terrific traditional ingredients prepared to perfection.
Oh, I should tell you that La'ie Bay is the name on the map. Us locals called it Hukilau Bay. Great place for crabbing and picking limu. If you go drive around O'ahu and someone says, "That's Hkilau Bay", don't get confused.INGREDIENTS:
- 1 pound sashimi-grade 'ahi, aku, or other fish, cut into 3/4-inch dice
- 1 small ball limu kohu, rinsed and chopped (makes about 1/2 cup chopped)
- 'Inamona to taste
- 1 Hawaiian chili pepper, trimmed and minced
- Hawaiian salt to taste
Put all the ingredients into a bowl and mix gently but well. Refrigerate, covered, for 1 hour or more. Serve chilled.
