Hawaiian Raw Fish Delicacy Invades Los Angeles

September 30, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
The Hawaiian staple known as poke (pronounced poke-eh) is gaining traction on the West Coast, especially in L.A. The chopped, seasoned raw fish is used as a topping or main ingredient in customizable sandwiches, burgers, burritos, pizza or salads, and can be served with brown rice, kale, sriracha and ponzu sauce. The popularity of the food is reflected in the number of poke restaurants that have opened over the last two years in the Los Angeles area. One of them serves poke on rice, salad or in a wrap with pineapple, seaweed salad, crab and crispy garlic or onions. Available seafood includes spicy tuna, tuna, salmon, yellowtail, scallop, albacore and octopus.
