*You can use any type of sea vegetable that you have available for the poke. In Hawaii some poke contains a type of sea vegetable called ogo.
*I often eat my poke with rice. Sometimes I like to add diced avocado to it and it's delicious. Tonight I eat it with crackers. I did not make this recipe too salty so it can actually be eaten as is.
*If you do not have access to kukui nuts you can use other unsalted nuts or seeds such as macadamia nuts, pine nuts, or sesame seeds.
