Oh my gosh do I have a good one for you. Just the thought of this recipe makes my mouth water 🤤
This recipe combines all of my favourite things: fresh fruit and veg, seafood and so many sauces to top them off.
The best thing about this recipe is you can mix and match with so many different veggies and toppings it will always be delicious.
When I make Tuna Poke I always make enough for two because it is one of my boyfriends absolute favourite meals. I’ve been perfecting it for a while and I think I get a little better every time.
The ingredients are:
250 grams of Ahi Tuna (however much you enjoy really) or about $10 worth.
2 cups of Prepared sushi rice or regular is good too
1 cup of bean or pea sprouts
1/2 Cucumber sliced thin
The Marinade for Tuna:
1 Tablespoon of Sesame Oil
1 Teaspoon Wasabi
A pinch of Salt and Pepper
Splash of pickled ginger juice
1 Tablespoon of chopped pickled ginger
And some assorted sauces!!! This is the fun part where you get to make a custom dressing to top your Ahi Tuna.
One of my favourite and most simple sauces is mixing a 2 to 1 ratio of wasabi and mayonnaise. Just so easy and tasty. You can mix it to your taste too if you like a more spicy Mayo, just add more wasabi.
I also use an in store Chipotle Mayo as a topping and then lots of ginger to garnish the side.
With the actual plating of the food you can display it in so many different ways. I use my handy bamboo boards but using a regular bowl and placing all your ingredients on top is just as lovely.
I tend to mix up all the ingredients when I eat it, so the display never lasts very long anyway. 😂
When I first had a Poke bowl is when I learned that healthy food can taste good, be enjoyable AND be within budget.
While we might not eat it every week it’s still a fairly budget friendly meal. Especially with the amount of takeout that is being ordered right now during this whole Pandemic, it’s been relaxing to make a really nice meal to sit and enjoy at home.
I hope this inspires you to take the time to make your own meal and sit and enjoy! There is something very therapeutic about cooking and then enjoying your own food.
