Get a fresh piece of sashimi grade ahi tuna and you are ready for a nice treat…simple and super easy ahi tuna poke (raw fish salad) recipe…
We are pretty addicted to poke since we discovered a while ago…poke places are popping up like crazy in our area, even Costco sells it…we have tried many places and they all have their specialties…I am okay with the Costco one, but the portion are humongous…which often is not suitable for our little family of two, and it does not taste the same the next day…so I decided to make my own…the one that I am sharing here today is pretty basic, you can really add what you like and come up with your own recipe…saltier, spicier, greener, crispier…as you see, so many option.
If you are not into raw fish, I totally get it, but if you enjoy sashimi you might want to try poke. I like to serve poke with white rice or even with crackers.
½lb ahi tuna, sashimi grade
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 green onion, finely chopped
½ teaspoon sesame oil
½ teaspoon sriracha
1 teaspoon roasted sesame seed
Cut the ahi tuna into approximately ½ inch square and place in a small bowl. Add the green onion on it.
In a small bowl, mix together the soy sauce, sriracha, sesame oil together.
Pour the sauce in the tuna and mix gently. Sprinkle the roasted sesame seeds and serve.
Did you know that poke is a Hawaiian verb? It means “slice”, “cut”.
