Poke Bowls

By Leslie Blythe  ,

Poke is a raw fish salad served as an appetizer or main course in Hawaiian cuisine. Be sure to use fresh, sushi-grade tuna for the very best flavor. The topping options are endless. I made it with avocado and baby cucumbers.

  • Prep: 20 mins
  • Yields: 4 appetizer servings


1Combine the tamari, mirin, scallions, sesame oil, ginger, honey, chile and some salt in a bowl, stirring together until the honey dissolves into the mixture. Fold in the tuna and refrigerate for 30 minutes for the flavors to combine.

2Serve with your favorite toppings, including sliced cucumbers and radishes, toasted sesame seeds, diced avocado, sliced nori, edamame and pickled ginger.
