- 1 pound Ahi tuna cut 1" dice
- 1/2 cup chopped limu kohu (red seaweed)
- 1 teaspoon Inamona (see below) (roasted, crushed kukui nut, optional but very traditional)
- 1/2 cup aloha shoyu (soy sauce)
- 1 Maui onion diced
- 1 cup whole kukui nuts
- Hawaiian salt to taste
Mix all ingredients and chill for 1 hour.
Inamona: Roast nuts whole over a grill or in a 325 degree oven until golden brown for 90 minutes. Crack 1 kukui nut, and if it is a dark brown color, they are ready. Cool nuts, scrape out the nutmeat, and chop finely. Add Hawaiian salt, to taste.
This recipe yields 8 to 10 servings as an appetizer.
