Poke (po-KEH) is the Hawaiian word for `slice.` The local-style pupu (appetizer) consists of marinated, fresh local fish that`s raw, seared or cooked. Spearheaded by celebrity chef Sam Choy, the contest celebrates locally sourced seafood with competition in four divisions. Culinary fun encourages the creative use of seaweed, seeds, herbs, spices, nuts, marinades, tofu, fruit, vegetables and seasoning. Sam Choy`s Keauhou Poke Contest is part of Keauhou Resort`s annual Kamehameha III celebration March 16-18 that commemorates the Keauhou-born king, Lani Kauikeaouli.
