Hawaiian Poke Salad with Wonton Chips


So last week Jenn asks me if I have ever had Poke Salad. Being Asian and a sushi/sashimi lover, I thought that was a weird question, because of course I have. And my awesome reaction was “Yeah, hasn’t everyone?”. Apparently not….awkward… Anyways, she said she wanted to try it, and I told her to order it whenever she goes out again. But then we figured it would be better if I just made it and we put it up on here, so here it is.



  • Ahi Tuna (1-2lbs)
  • 3 Green Onions chopped
  • 1 White/Red Onion julienned
  • 1/4 tsp Fresh Ginger grated
  • 1/2 cup Soy Sauce
  • 1 tsp Sesame Oil
  • Chili Flakes to taste
  • Wonton Skins (thick)




  • Cut the Ahi into small cubes (1/2 inch), put in bowl, and refrigerate for ~30 min
  • Mix the onions, green onions, ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, and chili flakes in a bowl
  • Refrigerate the mix for ~30 min
  • Deep fry the wonton skins until crisp and golden brown
  • Take the 2 bowls out of the refrigerator and mix the tuna into the sauce
  • Serve with the fried wonton skins


I topped it with a seaweed salad I got from a local Asian market for color.

  1. I’ve never had poke salad either. I didn’t even know what it was. This is such a simple dish I’d have to try it out.

    Keep the recipes coming! They all sound delicious!

    • Thank you! I guess I was completely wrong about the commonality of the dish haha. Let me know how yours goes! It’s really simple

  2. Looks awesome! I’ll admit I was a bit confused when I first started reading your post. Where I come from, poke salad is a totally different thing. My grandma used to send me out to pick leaves from a big pokeweed that grew in the back yard, and then she would boil them up with some onion and a little bacon. I was always totally grossed out by boiled greens of any sort. Your version looks much more appetizing!

  3. Wow, this looks really good! I love sushi and sashimi, so I’m sure I’d love this. I’ve never had poke salad either, but now I’m wondering why not! 🙂

    • Yeah, its a great dish. I definitely recommend trying it (either in a restaurant or at home)

  4. Wow, this looks great but I’m confused. Poke Salad in Oklahoma doesn’t have anything to do with tuna or seaweed. But nonetheless, thank you all for following us On Big Turtle Creek. 🙂 I love your tagline and your layout.
