Still See You Everywhere by Lisa Gardner / Ann’s Best Ever Pomaikai Poke

When missing persons expert Frankie Elkin arrives on a remote atoll in the Pacific in my novel  Still See You Everywhere, she quickly realizes the two most important members of the crew are the cooks.  Their ability to throw together amazing and satisfying meals makes all the difference between happy coworkers or hangry campmates. Cook Ann immediately proves her point by preparing tuna poke, a classic Hawaiian dish.  Ann’s version of this raw tuna salad includes macadamia nuts, lemon, and honey. Frankie declares it one of the best things she’s ever eaten.  You can check out this recipe to decide for yourself.
