Poke Salmon

Now that you have a freezer full of salmon after fishing with O’Fish’ial Charters, let’s start putting it to good use! Our featured recipes help you unlock the flavors and possibilities that your wild-caught Alaska salmon has to offer. I do encourage always freezing your salmon first before putting together any sushi-style salmon recipes. This recipe works best with either king or red salmon used right after defrosting.

Captain/Cook’s notes: Prepping is easy and it shares well! The size of cubes of your salmon and avocado come down to personal preference. Just keep in mind a little bit of all the flavors need to fit on your chip so I prefer it on the smaller side.


Juice of 1 fresh-squeezed lime
1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/8 cup sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground ginger, adding a little more doesn’t hurt!
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 tablespoon Furikake blend, which you can find in the Asian section of most supermarkets. Sesame seeds will work in a pinch but it does not do the recipe justice.

Optionally, you can add wasabi or Siracha sauce to taste to spice it up.


1 to 1.5 pounds of cubed salmon (slice off any skin and remove bones with pliers ahead)
2 avocadoes cubed similarly to the meat
Half to a whole bunch of minced cilantro
Half a red onion, diced 
Half cup diced green onion

Lastly mix both sets of ingredients and salt to taste; let it marry together in the refrigerator for a minimum of 15 minutes before serving. 

If you’re still shopping for the best tortilla chip option I am fully addicted to Juanitas brand. Enjoy!
