I found this recipe in the Honolulu Advertiser, and it was highlighting island food that had been given a healthy twist. This poke weighs in at only 206 calories, 4 grams of fat, and 2 grams of dietary fiber!

Units: US | Metric
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup peeled minced gingerroot
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (or 1 chopped Hawaiian chili pepper)
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 1 lb fish fillet ('ahi)
- 1 small onion, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1/2 lb coarsely chopped baby bok choy
- 1/2 cup chinese snow peas, trimmed
- 1In a bowl, mix the soy sauce, ginger, garlic and chili pepper with 1 teaspoon sesame oil.
- 2Place the 'ahi in a bowl and mix with half the soy mixture.
- 3Cover and let stand for 20 minutes at room temperature.
- 4Heat a large nonstick frying pan over high heat and coat the pan with 1 teaspoon sesame oil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
- 5Stir-fry the onion and bell pepper, about 4 minutes.
- 6Add the bok choy and snow peas, toss for another 2 minutes.
- 7Stir in the rest of the soy mixture. Cook for another minute.
- 8Push the vegetables to one side of the pan and, over high heat, stir-fry the 'ahi with its sauce for about 2 minutes.
- 9Remove immediately (you want to just sear the 'ahi on the outside) and serve with vegetables underneath and 'ahi on top.
- 10Steamed rice would be great, too, but count the calories and limit the portion size.
