When I got the call that the threshers were biting in
San Diego, I dropped everything and joined my
good friends, Brian and Gabe for the hunt. With our
100 pound mono leaders and live green back mackerels,
it was game on. Once the hook-ups started, the hour long
fights began and the cameras were never turned off.
With plenty of shark meat, I kept thinking about a Hawaiian
poke recipe I could make with thresher shark.
Just like in Hawaii, my new recipe uses a few simple veggies
and a traditional Hawaiian poke sauce made with soy sauce
and sesame seed oil. Now, the only thing missing is the
Hawaiian cacoue nuts, since I haven't been able to find I
used pistachios nuts instead.

If you need another shark recipe, try my Mexican shark soup.
Very traditional, easy to make and super yummy!
Thresher Shark Poke (serves 2)
1 pound thresher shark belly
1 bundle green onions, chopped
½ lb cucumbers, sliced
2 tablespoons coarse chopped pistachios
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
¼ cup soy sauce
¼ cup sesame seed oil
pistachios nuts, chopped

Make Hawaiian Poke Recipe!
1. Start making the poke sauce by mixing soy sauce and
sesame seed oil. Place inside the refrigerator and use
2. So now, place the cubed pieces of fish inside a mixing
3. Then next add the sliced cucumbers and green onions.
Keep in mind, a good rule of thumb is to use equals parts
of fish and veggies, while always remembering to keep
your food ingredients balanced.
4. Finally, grab the refrigerated poke sauce, and add that on
top of the fish veggie mixture, then top off with chopped
pistachios nuts. Finally, add the cut seaweed then top, and
a pinch sea salt. Enjoy.
