Messed Around and Made Poké : My Recipes (and Action Bronson’s)

Poke /poʊˈkeɪ/ is a raw salad served as an appetizer in Hawaiian cuisine.

A week or so ago, Action Bronson dropped a video on Munchies on the internets of him making this Poké for #FuckThatsDelicious and I saw it and decided right then and there that I wanted to recreate it.

So, here is my shot.

Poké - 1

Gotta get a really good grade of raw fish.

The spot that I went to is local, its called The Fish King and its here in Glendale. I usually go there to get good stuff to cook and never rocked any raw fish there but I know they have sushi grade.

I get black cod from there because its a lil bit difficult to find. This time, tuna.

As always, here is the disclaimer:

I’m not a chef, I’m not even a cook… I’m just a dude with shit in my fridge who likes to put things together…. thats all.

I don’t measure shit. I will add in something just because. I will pour a little beer in something if I happen to be drinking one. I’m just out’chea winging it.

I will say though, the shit I make turns out really, really good.

This one is a little bit different though, because I am absolutely unequivocally biting this recipe from Bronsolino.

Here is his video, and then I went in….


Fresh ginger on y’all bishes…..

Poké - 3

Here, I hit em with the green onions and regular onions and then hit you with the soy sauce, sesame oil and mirin. Just a little bit of mirin.

Poké - 4

Then cube out your fish to throw in the mix.

Quick note here, I made the bites too big. I probably should have gone 1/2 in. by 1/2 inch instead of what I did here. Still good, but a little heavy for each bite.

Stir it all up guys.

Poké - 5

The light it up with some roasted sesame seeds….

Poké - 6

Chop up some cilantro and throw it in the mix as well and you are on your way.

This is what Bronson’s finished product looks:

I would say that I’m pretty damn close with it and I’m happy with the flavor profile. It’s lacking because I couldn’t find the right togarashi seasoning for flavorings, but I did my googles and used some miscellaneous stuff that I had to get close.

I did well. Bronson did his very well, and next time I’m going to do it even better.

Cheers to Bronson and go buy all of his music. Late.
