Pokērrito (pokē + burrito)

"Pokērrito” (pokē + burrito) is a name that was filed for a trademarked in September 2015. Los Angeles magazine described the dish (from Great Rice Balls of Fire) on January 28, 2016:

“The tuna and salmon pokerrito—a portmanteau of poke and burrito, along the same lines of the sushirrito and the phorrito—stuffed with avocado, seaweed salad, red onion, and mixed greens.”


Wikipedia: Poke
Poke /poʊˈkeɪ/ is a raw fish salad served as an appetizer in Hawaiian cuisine. Pokē is the Hawaiian verb for “section” or “to slice or cut”. Ahi poke is generally made with yellowfin tuna but in modern poke recipes raw salmon, smoked octopus, to various shell fish and generally any bite size appetizer seasoned with the common “poke” seasonings can be considered Poke.
