A great meal doesn't require great effort. It's all about the ingredients - where they come from, how they are produced and by paying attention to seasonality and sustainability. See in this video how easy it is.
Start by adding one tablespoon of sesame oil, soy sauce, sweet onions, green onions, Hawaiian salt, shichimi togarashi orchili flakes, toasted macadamia nuts, sesame seeds and the ogo/limu (if using). Using your hands or wooden spoons, gently toss together and adjust the seasoning to your liking.
Divide the rice between 2 bowls. Arrange the poke on top of the rice and sprinkle with shredded nori or furikake, serve immediately.
Aloha from LA, where the ZWILLING Culinary Journey started on Monday, September 4th. This is where Meike Peters met Alana Kysar – blogger and soon to be cookbook author (http://www.fixfeastflair.com) - in her modern flat in Downtown LA. Alana's blog was named Saveur Magazine’s Readers Choice for Best New Voice in 2015.
Alana is Hawaiian and has Japanese and German roots, which makes her recipes both exotic and international. Growing up surrounded by a family of true food lovers, Alana spent her whole life in the kitchen with her mum and dad. While her dad set great value on how her creations were decorated (he even established a judging system for creativity and presentation), her mum was her biggest role model: “She’s all that I want to be in the kitchen!”. It’s no wonder that she invited Meike to prepare one of the most famous Hawaiian dishes she remembers from her childhood: Hawaiian Poke (raw fishbowl).
While cooking together, Meike discovered one of Alana's key characteristics: She knows what she wants and doesn’t accept compromises. This way of getting to know someone - by cooking together in their kitchen – is what Meike calls “Meet in your kitchen (MIYK)” We’ll experience many more MIYK features during our Culinary Journey with ZWILLING.
Alana is currently working on her first cookbook, which will also feature Hawaiian cuisine. Her suggestion is to enjoy the famous Poke dish: “On the beach with a bunch of friends and a six-pack of beer.”
