Ahi Tuna Poke Bowl

In light of the whole Pokemon craze I thought it would be fun to make Ahi Tuna Poke Bowl. The first time I ever had Poke was in Hawaii and I was hooked. I am always skeptical with eating raw fish so that’s why I avoided before. Since coming back from Hawaii I’ve been making Ahi Tuna Poke Bowls for he family. I finally perfected a recipe and I’m ready to share it with you. The number one question I get asked is where to find fresh Ahi Tuna for the poke, turns out after a lot of research that flash frozen ahi tuna works just fine. I also learned that a lot of the Poke I had in Hawaii was already previously frozen. I found frozen Ahi Tuna Poke at my local grocery store. I would also ask the butcher in the seafood section what fish they recommend for poke as well. Ahi Tuna Poke Bowls are fast becoming a trend because it’s so healthy and delicious. I’ve seen many poke shops pop up this recent year and it’s only gaining momentum. If you haven’t tried or made Ahi Tuna Poke Bowls before, I really recommend this recipe for your first time. It’s so easy to make, but I understand sourcing the ingredients might be intimidating if you never set foot in an Asian market before. That is why I put some of those hard find items as optional, the Ahi Tuna Poke Bowl will still be delicious with or without it. The main attraction is the tuna!
