This recipe was developed as part of our St. Supéry Great Sustainable Seafood Tour. Hawaiian Kanpachi from Blue Ocean Mariculture meets the Seafood Watch good yellow rating and also pairs well with our St. Supéry, Napa Valley Estate Sauvignon Blanc in this version of Poke. Kanpachi is in the Amberjack family and has a sweet, buttery, clean flavor and is similar to Hamachi Yellowtail.
*Seaweed salad (Goma Wakame) can be found in seafood markets or Japanese specialty grocers. You may be able to find the original Limu or Ogo fresh seaweed from Hawaii for the authentic version but this seaweed salad is a good substitute.
