Summer is in full swing here in Hawaii and that means that my family and I will be making good use of our grill.  Grilling, Barbequing or as we like to call it in Hawaii – Pulehu is such a great thing to do during the summer months because we not only enjoy our time together, but we also have great food and company.  Today I’m going to be sharing with you a new tool that we have been including in our grilling ventures – the Triple Stainless Steel Grill Brush from Cave Tools.  I’ve reviewed products from Cave Tools before and my husband and I absolutely love what we have tried from the brand, but I think this particular one is our favorite.

The Grill Brush from Cave Tools has triple stainless steel bristles and a rust proof design.  Retailing for $19.99 (currently on sale for $12.99) this Grill brush is well made with a rust proof, water proof and snow proof design.

This grill brush has stainless steel bristles that wrap all the way around the top giving you better cleaning angles and longer lasting durability.  What I love is that it’s easy to hold which makes cleaning your grill easy to do and control and hold are easy because of the angle of the brush.  The handle and clip is very heavy duty and keeps all 3 brushes tight together for maximum cleaning power or all different types of grill plates and the bristles are safe for use on porcelain.

We used this grill brush to test against baked and cooked on pork ribs and barbeque sauce and after heating up the grill and using the grill brush to clean the grill – the grit and everything stuck on removed easily and with little effort.

After a quick use of the Cave Tools Grill Brush – we were able to get the grill clean and ready for steaks.

What I love the most about this brush is that it is 100% Rust Proof.  We leave our grill brushes outside and have gone through MANY of them in the past (as you can see the remnants of one in the picture above).  Each grill brush we have used has rusted on us in a matter of a few short weeks.  This grill brush has taken a beating and still keeps going looking like new.  We live in Hawaii where the salt air tends to rust everything we own and this brush has held up to the elements.  Cave Tools has battle tested the brush through rain and snow and it has held up in our weather too.

Being a Hawaii girl – born & raised, I have a love for all things seafood… yes, even raw seafood.  The islands are my home and as a child I learned to fish and dive for my food to provide for my family.  Because of this, special recipes passed down over the years are favorites of mine and I absolutely love sharing my love for my culture with my friends around the World.  Poisson Cru, otherwise known as Tahitian Style Poke (poke = po – ke) is different from the familiar Ahi Poke you see in Hawaiian style restaurants.  It’s a poke that is similar to ceviche with ingredients like lime juice to marinate the fish, but also uses coconut milk to give it a different texture and taste.  It’s a tangy take on the original Poke you may be used to at a Lu’au but just as delicious and full with fresh ingredients to make a hearty and tasty dish.

Foodie Friday – Poisson Cru, Tahitian Style Poke Recipe

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 8

Ingredients

  1. 1 lb fresh fish (I used ahi – but you can select to use snapper or swordfish also). Cut your fish in 1 3/4 inch x 1/4 inch cubes
  2. 3 tablespoons Masago/Tobiko (orange fish roe) this is not a traditional ingredient, but I love it and it really adds to the flavor and texture
  3. 1 small sweet round onion (Kula Onion from Maui is the best, but any sweet round onion will do). Minced
  4. 1 small Japanese cucumber, chopped
  5. 4-5 stalks green onion, chopped. Separate the white and the green parts – chop both
  6. 1 large tomato – seeded and chopped
  7. 1/2 cup lime juice (fresh preferred)
  8. 1/4 cup coconut milk (fresh preferred, but you could get the type in a can or frozen in the ethnic food section.)
  9. 2 pinches Hawaiian Rock Salt or Ala’e
  10. Sprig of Cilantro (I use this for garnish)

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the ahi (or fish of choice) with all of the ingredients, except use only the white parts of the green onion.
  2. Allow to sit for 10 minutes (place in the refrigerator while waiting).
  3. Prior to serving, drain the excess liquid and taste the poke to adjust seasoning.
  4. Add more hawaiian salt or coconut milk if you need.
  5. Garnish with the green parts of the chopped green onion and cilantro.

Service:

Serve the preparation of the Poisson Cru immediately after it has sit for the 10 minutes.  This mixture will serve about 8.  If you will not be serving this mixture immediately – please prep and cut all items but do not mix together until ready to serve.

**This is my take on the Poisson Cru recipe.  There are many available now a days with personal interpretations of the recipe as well as additional or less products.  You can definitely use my recipe as inspiration to add different takes.

What is Pokē?

Pokē is traditionally made with yellowfin tuna or ahi.  The traditional poke consists of ahi tuna, green onions, chili peppers, hawaiian sea salt, soy sauce, sesame oil, roasted kukui nut (candlenut) and limu and served as an appetizer in Hawaiian cuisine.  It is often referred to as a raw fish salad. Pokē is the Hawaiian verb for “section” or “to slice or cut” and refers to the slices / cuts of the pieces that are mixed into this salad.

I hope you enjoyed this easy to create recipe.  Some of the ingredients may be a bit challenging to find, but you can get the roe and fish at most fish markets and the other items like coconut milk at the ethnic section of your store.  If you try this recipe, please come back & let me know.  Are you a fish eater?  Do you think you would enjoy something like this?
