Cy’s Aku Poke
My brother, who is quite a fisherman, makes a killer poke. While a lot of people prefer using ahi, Cy prefers aku and says it is THE BEST for sashimi and poke. Very simply made.
Flavored with 3 types of seaweed, our Hawaiian red clay salt and Cy is fortunate as his mother in law has Thai chili pepper growing in her yard. The best part, my brother always shares!
