    Yet again...another mangled recipe .

    All you need for POKE is Raw tuna, Ojo seaweed, Hawaiian seasalt, sesame oil, scallions and hot pepper flakes...
    Look on Amazon for NOH Brand Poke kit

    Well, someone was asleep at the wheel here. This recipe could make you very, very sick. You must use sashimi grade ahi, maguro or any type of tuna, but it must be sashimi grade to be eaten in a poke, which does not sit in the lime juice long enough to cook. No tuna that is not sashimi grade should be eaten raw in a poke; I believe you could get worms or worse.

    **Update: I just saw the reference to using sashimi-grade ahi in the introduction to this recipe. This is good. Nevertheless, since all three reviews refer to the omission of this detail in the recipe itself, The Cooking Channel should edit the recipe to note this critical detail before someone gets sick.

    Idy Cook, the tuna is meant to be eaten "raw". I only put the word raw in quotes because it is debatable if the acid in the lime actually cooks the fish. Ahi tuna in generally is eaten raw or at the very most rare with a quick sear to cook only the outside. To minimize the slight risk of foodborne illness be sure to buy frozen tuna intended for sushi.

    ...the FDA provides guidance under their Parasite Destruction Guarantee. This states in part that fish intended to be consumed raw must be “frozen and stored at a temperature of -20°C (-4°F) or below for a minimum of 168 hours (7 days)”.

    Great traditional recipe by the way!

    This was a very fast and delicious dish. The dressing turned out great. The only thing confusing for me was to cook the ahi or not. I did not cook it the first time and I loved it. My husband was a little worried because it was raw so the second time I cooked it (to long) I did not like it that was the meat was very tough. Any tips??
