Ahi Tuna Poke

While I do not shop at Costco a ton, there is one thing that I will give them credit for...their ahi tuna. At all the Costco's i've been to they have packages of sushi grade ahi tuna for a reasonable price. Whenever I get it I end up making poke with it and it's a hit. 

Super simple, super fresh, and tasty.  It's great on crackers as a snack, on a bed of fresh rice as more of an entree.

Since there are so few ingredients, and it's not cooked, you REALLY need fresh ingredients to enjoy this. The fish needs to be fresh and GREAT quality as well as any veggies you put in it. I gave the basic recipe below but experiment with it and give it your own twist. 


1 lb (approx) ahi tuna

1/4 cup tamari (or soy sauce if you don't have to worry about gluten)

1 tbl toasted sesame oil

sesame seeds (preferably toasted)

2 green onions chopped

1 avocado (skip if not in season)

red chili pepper flakes


Cut up the tuna into small cubes and place in a bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and fold gently to stir. Taste and adjust for what you'd like.
