It's a culinary trend from Hawaii now sweeping California, and thanks to Little Catch, you can get it in Shanghai too. We're talking about poke (pronounced 'poh kay'), a Hawaiian fresh fish salad involving a bowl of sushi rice topped with sashimi-grade fish and garnished with any number of different salady toppings.

We tried the 'dynamite ahi poke' (RMB55), which came with spicy mayo, onion, furikake seasoning, toasted cashews, tobiko, nori seaweed and of course, fresh chunks of tuna on rice.

And also the 'sambal salmon poke' (RMB55). We'd say this one was our favorite thanks to the sambal chilli kick and nutty texture.

For now you'll need to go to Little Catch in person to pick up your poke, but founder Wenyi Huang tells us they're considering doing delivery within a limited area in the future.

In case you didn't know Little Catch, they're a premium fishmonger who sell restaurant quality fresh fish, seafood, wine and other hard to find ingredients for cooking, such as foie gras, cuttlefish ink, anchovies and specialty oysters.
