About: Adds a rich, sweet wasabi heat to your seafood, sushi, and rice dishes. A certified crowd pleaser!
Ahi Tuna is native to and beloved by Hawaiians who bestowed it with the Hawaiian word for fire, Ahi. When these powerful yellow fined fish caught the fishing line, its ferocious swimming caused the rope to create traction on the side of the canoe, appearing aflame. Pan-seared, grilled, or raw, this blend intensifies and compliments the revered fish magnificently.
For centuries, Hawaiian Fishermen have cut their freshly caught Ahi Tuna into cubes and doused it with seasonings to enjoy raw in poke bowls. Essentially, poke is the Hawaiian adaptation of Japanese sashimi. Poke bowls have transcended casual and fine dining, appearing both in local grocery stores and upscale restaurants. In fact, the islanders are so obsessed, an annual 3-day festival is thrown in its honor. Chefs from far and wide come to showcase their inventive variations, and then the locals partake in a Poke feast fit for kings. However, you chose to prepare this glorious fish, it'll become clear how the Hawaiians fell irrevocably in love with Ahi Tuna.
