Denny's Tuna Oka

Serves 2

Denny's Tuna Oka


Our Portland Pier wharf manager, Denny Fiaalii, had told us stories of his oka dish, a dish found in Samoa where he's from, and often served with salmon or other super fresh fish that's available. He made us some oka one morning on Portland Pier with bluefin tuna caught just a few feet away, and it might just become our new favorite breakfast. Adjust the sriracha mayo for your desired level of heat!
