Poke is a traditional Hawaiian dish. It is cut into cubes. It is prepared by marinating raw fish caught by Hawaiian fishermen with salt, nori, and kukui nuts. It started when fishermen seasoned the pieces of their catch to serve as a snack.

Traditional poke consists of gutted, skinned, and deboned fish. It may consist of diced raw fish, Inamona, Maui onions, green onions, and sesame oil. It is served with spices and condiments, such as sea salt. Modern Hawaiian versions use soy sauce, furikake, dried chili peppers, caviar, and wasabi. Fish species may include dried octopus, raw tuna species, raw salmon, and shellfish. 

In North American versions, various fusions such as ponzu sauce, teriyaki sauce, sriracha sauce, avocado, mushrooms, crispy onions, pickled jalapenos, pineapple, cucumber, edamame, etc. can be used. It is also called new-generation sushi. It is a blend of American, French, Spanish, Chinese, and Japanese cuisines.
