Poke, which means “to cut into pieces,” is as culturally significant to Hawaii as hamburgers are to the mainland. Dating back to the islands’ first Polynesian settlers, the dish combined chunks of reef fish, seaweed, kukui nuts and salt. As modern fishing techniques emerged, Ahi replaced reef fish and today remains the preference for most variations of poke.

Our proton-frozen poke chunks originate from U.S. wild-caught Pacific bigeye and yellowfin, both known as Ahi. They offer firm texture, mild flavor and well-balanced fat content. Depending on the size of the fish, flesh color may range from pink to deep cherry red. Hand cut in house, our poke chunks are irregular-shaped portions that we vacuum pack and Proton freeze in 1lb sheet packs. They are ideal for poke as well as tuna stacks, tuna tartare, ceviche, seafood salads and more - just cut them to the size you prefer! 

What is Proton-Frozen?

Proton-freezing is a quick-freeze technology that combines evenly distributed electromagnetic waves and cold air to reduce ice crystal formation and cell membrane damage. As a result, taste and texture are preserved naturally, without any additives or chemicals. Color is also comparable to fresh if fish is properly stored and defrosted*.

*Certain species, like tuna, naturally turn brown once exposed to air or if stored in a traditional freezer. Proton freezing technology slows this process but does not prevent it. For best results, we recommend placing proton frozen tuna in the coldest part of your freezer and storing for no more than 7 days. When ready to eat, slowly defrost in refrigerator and consume within same 24 hours.
