    Poke (poh-keh) is a seriously tasty dish that's easy, healthy, and quintessentially Hawaiian.

    You can serve our Tuna Poke either as an appetizer, or as a main dish with rice or noodles and your choice of toppings.

    Our Poke Kits feature sparkling pure wild ahi (yellowfin) tuna from Indonesian fishing villages, plus organic seasonings for fabulous, authentically Hawaiian flavor.

    Just dress* the chopped tuna with our Hawaiian seasoning, add soy sauce, sesame oil, and any raw veggies you wish, then serve over rice, noodles, or greens.

    As people say in the Islands before sharing some fresh poke, “e ‘ai kākou”, or “let’s eat”!

    *Our Kit provides a very generous amount of Hawaiian seasoning, which contains salt. We suggest you add half the seasoning packet and 1/2 tablespoon of soy sauce (the recipe card calls for 1 tablespoon) and then taste-test the result before adding more of either.

    Sushi-safe tuna
    Our ocean-fresh tuna is flash frozen at or below -4°F (-20°C), which ensures that it’s perfectly safe to serve raw as poke, sushi, or ceviche.

    About our yellowfin tuna
    Our sustainably harvested yellowfin comes from small-scale, artisanal Indonesian fisheries.

    We partnered with a local supplier that delivers consistently top-quality tuna, pays fair-trade prices to fishermen, and helps them remove barriers to success.

    These small-scale fisheries are vital to remote rural communities, providing critical, nutritionally rich food source and employment.

    Why is our yellowfin tuna red rather than brown?
    Yellowfin sold in the U.S. is often exposed to synthetic carbon monoxide (CO) gas.

    Exposure to CO gas preserves tuna’s natural reddish-pink color, but will also make old fish appear fresher than it is, because tuna treated with CO stays red even after it spoils.

    Instead of synthetic CO gas, our tuna is exposed to filtered, flavorless smoke from certified-pure hardwoods. This preserves the tuna’s natural reddish-pink color, but it cannot mask old fish, because smoke-treated tuna will turn brown long before it begins to spoil.

    "Jane" Jane on 11/20/2020 03:27 Review: It was not even edible. It was so bad. I did contact Vital Choice and they refunded me fully. Thank you for sharing your experience. We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy this product but happy to hear our team took care of you. Thank you!

    "Super delicious and fresh" Josh Isenberg on 11/07/2020 06:12 Review: This made some of the best tuna Poke I have had, and my entire family loved it. I appreciated the rich and firm--yet silky-texture of the pristinely fresh tuna, the uniform cube size with zero scraps. The Poke was flat-packed and vacuum-sealed so stored well and it thawed uniformly. Note that this isn't a full kit and that buyers will still need soy sauce and toasted sesame oil. The seasoning packet is large and spiced liberally with chile flakes and salt already, so we found we only needed 25% of it and also used reduced-sodium Tamari. If we had used all of the seasoning packet and regular sodium Tamari, I imagine the Poke could have been overly salty and spicy. I also appreciated the great order updates, how well-packaged my shipment arrived, and that most of the packaging material was recycled cardboard and fiber instead of foam and plastic.
