A Mediterranean twist on a Hawaiian favorite: poké. Poke has the world by storm! This beloved Hawaiian dish of soy-marinated raw fish and fresh vegetables is the hottest trend in casual dining. Our Mediterranean-style poke adds balsamic vinegar to the marinade, enhancing the firm texture of barramundi while pairing elegantly with diced tomato, pine nuts, and pomegranate seeds. This is an easy, sophisticated, and healthy appetizer that will hit the spot on a beautiful summer afternoon. Recipe by Chef Kelly Armetta.


Step 1
Pat the barramundi very dry before cutting. Dice into 1/2 inch cubes.
Step 2
Mix soy sauce and balsamic vinegar together to make the marinade. Pour over the raw fish.
Step 3
Put the scallions, red onion, pine nuts, plum tomato, basil leaves, and pomegranate seeds into a bowl. Add the fish and marinade. Toss gently and let it marinate for at least 20 minutes, but no more than 4 hours.
Step 4
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Toast the pita bread by cutting into quarters, then each quarter in half to make 8 triangles. Place in a single layer on a sheet pan. Bake for 10 minutes or until crisp.
