Fresh Catch, a seafood market in Honolulu means just that, FRESH! Fresh Catch came highly recommended to my by a friend who frequents the Island. It's just like a meat counter at a specialty deli, rows and rows of the best quality product. It was hard for me to make a choice as to what to order because quite frankly, I wanted it all! I settled on a spicy sesame and soy ahi poke, rice, lomi salmon and shrimp poke. Poke can be found everywhere in Hawaii in every variety under the sun from octopus, to salmon to mussels. Modern poke usually consists of cubed raw ahi (yellowfish tuna), marinated with sea salt, soy sauce, sesame oil, limu seaweed and chili powder (wikipedia). 

I was quite impressed by the powerful flavors and fresh ingredients. This place is not for the seafood novice, sorry guys- no popcorn shrimp at this hot spot :) If you are traveling to Honolulu, don't miss this one!
