Recipe: Hawaiian Poke
Until visiting Hawaii this summer, we never would have guessed how much better poke gets when paired with My Rock Rosé !Who knew?
A Hawaiian staple, the light fresh ahi tuna intermingles with the delicate nature of this rose. The acid cuts through the sweetness of the teriyaki sauce to show off the subtle flavor of the fresh ahi tuna hidden underneath. The bright crispness of the rosé compliments the umami flavor from the sauce, allowing you to enjoy both without one masking the other.
- 1 pound Sushi grade ahi tuna
- 1/4 Cup Hawaiian teriyaki sauce, we use which is found at any grocery store.
- 1-2 Sprigs green onion
- 2 Cups sushi rice/regular rice
- 1 Tsp lemon juice
