Ahi Tuna Poke | www.sweetteasweetie.com Summertime is perfect for light and fresh dishes. I am pretty much obsessed with this Ahi Tuna Poke. For those of you who are unfamiliar with poke, it is a traditionally Hawaiian dish that is popping up on menus all over the place. You start with a high quality, sushi grade raw fish, then add in something salty (like a seaweed salad or soy sauce), and something crunchy (onions, seasame seeds, cucumber, etc), toss everything together well & serve! The most popular kind is make with ahi tuna (my favorite), but I also enjoy it make with albacore, crab, or salmon. I serve it as an appetizer at parties because I’m always looking for a protein based appetizer, but it can also be a whole meal if you add it to quinoa, brown rice, or on top of a salad.

I served my poke with wontons, but it also tastes wonderful with any kind of chip or served on cute little serving spoons. I like to pick up Chinese soup spoons (like the kind they give you with your egg drop or sweet and sour soup), place a little bit of poke and a chunk of avocado on top, and serve it in bite sizes! You can also mix in other toppings to make your bowl more unique.

Other delicious add ins for your poke bowl:
  • Toasted macadamia nuts
  • Diced avocado
  • Grilled pineapple
  • Chopped cucumber
  • Cubed jicama
  • Chilis or peppers (for those who enjoy a kick with their meal)
