Usually seen with tuna, poke (poh-keh) is the California craze that’s slowly infusing the rest of the U.S., first in metropolitan cities. It’s a raw, sushi-grade fish salad popular for decades in Hawaii, kind of like ceviche or tartare in other cuisines. The protein is usually marinated in soy sauce and sesame oil, then combined with other ingredients that can vary widely. The name comes from the Hawaiian, “to cut or slice.” The traditional version is just the cubed, high-quality raw fish, seasoned and placed cold atop a bowl of hot sushi-grade rice.

And see our guide to types of salmon for more about different varieties of the fish.
