We first learned to love raw fish thanks to sushi and ceviche. Then came crudo, the raw fish dish of the moment, a seemingly mandatory addition to the menu of any new Italian restaurant. Will poke, the raw fish dish of Hawaii be the next wave? Try the salmon avocado poke at District Fresh Kitchen and Bar in Wayzata and decide for yourself.
The presentation is picture perfect, a glistening disc of fish and avocado diced into precise and identically sized pieces. The silky texture of the avocado provides a nice backdrop for the sturdier salmon. The accompanying gazpacho salsa adds a little kick to the plate, and the sesame crackers contribute crunch. Top a cracker with a forkful of poke and a dab of salsa and it all comes together in one delicious bite.
