Another island favorite. Maui onion is used because of its mild sweet flavor. If adding soy sauce, add it just prior to serving. I think kukui nut oil will work just as well. I was just thinking that this would be great with chopped limu (seaweed)!

Born and raised in Hawaii, I know what is good poke. And this recipe is as authentic as it can be. I also added Avocado cubes in mines. Currently, the trend in Hawaii is to add Avocado. It's mean, she go (as locals like to say) . Onolicous. Alright, take it easy. Alohas!
