Lifestyle: Ahi Tuna Poke Bowl Recipe

Poke (pronounced poh-keh) is a raw fish salad served as an appetizer in Hawaiian cuisine. I tried poke for the first time 4 years ago when I traveled to Hawaii with my family and is has easily become one of my favorite meals ever since, & is healthy too!  BUT, poke is definitely something that should be eaten in moderation (1-2 times a week at most is my standard).

My favorite part about this recipe is how simple it is to make... you can customize every single thing to just the way you like (ie. type of fish, toppings, marinade, etc).

Ingredients that call for the way I like my poke are as follows..... (Serves: 3-4)
  • 1 lb ahi tuna 
  • 1 cup uncooked rice
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 1-2 avocados
  • 1/2 diced sweet onion
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons sesame seeds (great source of protein!)
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons ponzu sauce (optional)
  • lots of siracha
  • seaweed salad
*note- most things listed are completely optional but are the ingredients I like to use! You can add other things such as minced ginger, red pepper flakes, macadamia nuts, lemon juice, scallions etc. 

So, now for the step-by-step process... It is super simple! Cook your rice in a rice cooker or in a pot. As the rice is cooking, I like to cut up everything {ahi tuna, cucumber, jalapeño, avocado, onion, garlic} and toss the ahi tuna, jalapeño, onion, and garlic into the marinade {soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, ponzu sauce, and siracha}. You can cut up the ahi tuna into thin strips or into cubes.

Then from there, everything goes into your bowl. I like to start with the rice, then ahi tuna/marinade mixture, and lastly I like to put some seaweed salad, cucumber, avocado, and sesame seeds on the top! Enjoy, xx
