As with most Hawaiian recipes, ahi poke is best freshly prepared, though it can keep in the refrigerator up to one day.

This Hawaiian poke nachos recipe is a great way to use up fresh caught ahi tuna.

I like to serve my fresh ahi poke on fried wonton triangles to make poke nachos. You can also form the wontons into “taco shells” for a different presentation.
