My husband loves Ahi Poke and orders it whenever he gets the chance. So when I stumbled on a recipe for it on Pinterest I just had to make it for him.
Ahi is such a buttery lovely fish when eaten raw, that it doesn’t need much. I added soy sauce, a touch of sesame oil, sesame seeds, some green onions and avocado. Are you asking what is Ahi Poke and the best way I can describe, well how the waiter explained it to be when I first ordered it, that it’s like a raw tuna salad.
The add-ins are endless really and use your own personal judgment with measurements. I like mine with avocado and I have seen and eaten them with red onions, sea weed, ginger, jalapenos, and garlic. I’ve seen some poke with red onion or with avocado and different types of sea weed and ginger. My only advice is that to let the tuna shine so don’t let the flavorings overpower the fish, but just enhance it the flavor of it.
- 1 lb ahi tuna, cut into cubes
- 3-4 Tb soy sauce, I used low sodium
- 2 green onion, chopped
- 1 Tb sesame oil
- 1 Tb sesame seeds
- 1 avocado, cut into cubes
- Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve.
