Ahi poke means raw fish, usually yellowfin or ahi tuna, tossed with zippy sauce and flavorful vegetables. Spooned over rice or eaten as is, it comes with tasty accoutrements such as seaweed, wasabi, ginger, and cucumber. This dish is for everyone who loves sushi rolls who’d like to have something more simple and easy-to-make. It’s for food lovers who are tired of the same recipes and want to enjoy new flavors.
To begin with, you should purchase fresh, quality fish for this recipe. We recommend you to visit the local fish market, ask for sashimi-like tuna and use it the same day. This recipe is best eating shortly after prepared and not sit in a fridge for longer than a day.
All ingredients are easily accessible, and you don’t need to get a lot of fish. 6 oz of tuna can feed a big group of people, considering other delicious products that you’re also adding.
