Tuna Poke Recipe

The sun is shining (in-between torrential rain showers) and so, it seemed fitting to introduce the fish dish of the moment, Tuna Poké, to our contract catering menus this week.

Poké (pronounced POKE-AY) originated in the tropical climates of Hawaii, hit the streets of London at food markets across the city earlier this year and has been going down swimmingly (!).  Tuna is the most commonly used Poké but that’s not to say you can’t get experimenting.  We’ve put together our Tuna Poké recipe below and it’s the perfect lunchbox filler (back in the day in Hawaii, people used to pack it in their Tupperware to enjoy on the beach) as well as an exciting and different starter dish.
