“Don't ask me what maguro poke is. I ran a search for it on Google and didn't get much of an answer. I looked for it on Recipezaar and came up with a bunch of recipes for Poke Cake. But one of my favorite food blogs, Brownie Points, has a recipe for it today, a suggestion for something simple and no cooking involved, a good way to beat the recent heat wave (hence the name). Looks like a winner to me! Edited to add -- I now know what Maguro Poke means! Thanks to Zaar member Pikake21, who wrote and told me: Poke is the Hawai'ian way of referring to a "sort-of" Japanese sashimi salad. Usually it has some soyu, green onions, sesame, salt, etc involved. Maguro is just one kind of tuna, hence the name maguro poke (pronounced "poh-keh"...instead of "poh-kee."”
