Ahi Poke

Living in Pensacola, we have unbelievable amounts of fresh seafood available. So I figured, why not take advantage? One of the most common appetizers at restaurants here is Ahi Poke. It truly is a very, very easy appetizer to make. If you have sushi grade ahi available, take advantage of this recipe.

Ingredients:

tuna

First: dice your avocado, tuna, and cucumbers into uniform 1/2 inch cubes. Thinly slice your scallion. Set all of this aside in a bowl.

Second: add about 1 tablespoon of soy sauce and 1 tablespoon of sesame oil to the tuna (I used 1/4 pound), scallions, and cucumbers and mix. Freely adjust the amount of soy sauce to your liking. I prefer less salty foods so hence, the 1 tablespoon.

Third: add your avocado and gently mix to avoid smashing it to smithereens. Top off with nori and enjoy!

Extras: I eat this solo but many restaurants serve it with rice crackers (which you can find in most Asian food stores). You can also top it off with toasted sesame seeds or macadamia nuts.
