Poke (pronounced pok-eh) is a seasoned tartare, usually with tuna (ahi). If you love tuna sashimi or sushi, you will love this easy recipe which is spiced up with a little wasabi, which I love. Serve over hot sticky rice, with chips, or eat straight on as a salad.

  • To construct the tower, mound and flatten the cucumber in the center of a serving platter. Top the cucumber with mango and then the avocado. Place the marinated tuna on top. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.

  • To serve, place chips around the poke tower for scooping. Or serve with hot sticky (sushi) rice, or enjoy as is as a salad.

Tips

You can purchase wasabi pre-made in a tube, or you can purchase frozen dried wasabi root and mix it with water to your desired consistency. To create a tower, use a ring mold, or create one yourself with heavy cardboard.

This was really good - I'd only marinate for an hour or it will be mushy - I also added 2 tablespoons of orange juice - it brought out the flavors of the marinade. Read More

This was simply awful! I purchased a beautiful piece of sashimi grade Ahi (at $27 per pound) and it was completely ruined with this recipe. The amount of soy sauce is outrageous and there is no need to "marinate" in it for 2 hours. It tasted like soy sauce and nothing more. The flavor of the fish, fruit and veggies were completely over powered. I wish I had thought about this a bit before diving in. Hopefully this review will save the rest of you the sadness of ruining a beautiful piece of fish. Read More
