poke, zuke, hwe dub bap.
a dish with many names. which makes sense.
Hawaii is like Okinawa; the cuisine has strong Korean and Japanese influences.
basically, you purchase sushi scraps from your local, trusty Asian market and marinate it in a soy mixture, then eat it on top of rice. In Japanese this is called zuke-don – “pickled/brined bowl”.
Zuke-Don serves 2
1/2 pound mixed sashimi – tuna, yellowtail, octopus, whitefish, salmon, whatever is available, cut into 1/2 inch chunks
1 small cucumber, cut into 1/2 inch chunks
2 stalks scallions, sliced
A. 2 tbsp soy sauce
A. 1 tbsp sesame seeds
A. 1 tbsp sesame oil
A. 1 tbsp mirin
A. 1 tsp gochujang
1. Combine ingredients (A) and mix until there are no lumps.
2. Toss the rest of the ingredients with mixture (A) and marinate in fridge for 20 minutes and up to an hour.
3. Serve on top of rice. Garnish with daikon sprouts.
Note – I blanched the sprouts because pregnant women aren’t supposed to eat raw sprouts. Could go into early labor or something scary like that.
