Seafood dish: From poké to kinilaw
We can’t vouch for all Hawaiian food (no Spam, thanks), but poké (pronounced POH-kay, which means “to section, slice, or cut”)—raw fish (usually tuna) tossed with Asian flavors—is simple, hearty, and incredibly delicious. Just combine cubes of raw, best-quality tuna with sweet onion, scallions, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, red-pepper flakes, and good salt. Done.
Kinilaw is the seviche of the Philippines, except made with everything from oysters to goat meat. It’s an unexpected way to prepare your favorite protein with minimal fuss: Raw fish or meat is doused with cane or coconut vinegar, mixed with onion or shallots, ginger, chili peppers, various fruits and/or vegetables, and maybe coconut milk, and left just 15 minutes or so.
