Looks very yummy! We are off shrimp, though! Long story. I will substitute seared "poke" (poh – key), a Hawaiian version of fish sushi: diced raw tuna with lots of green onion and seaweed. Different styles of poke are sold in Hawaii's grocery stores. I prefer to pan – sear the poke, then chill (instead of eating the raw sushi).

Hi Poha, raw poke has a did a number on me once … so definitely with you on the pan-searing part. Thank you for the suggestion. xoLexie
