Sometimes when I miss Hawaii, I just make myself some Keto Ahi Poke. Poke, a traditional Hawaiian raw fish dish, has found its way to the mainland and people LOVE it. I see poke bowl places everywhere, and what’s funny is how many toppings are involved.
First, the bowls are usually on a bed of rice (carbs!), and then you go down the line and choose all your toppings, adding more and more to your bowl (which equals more calories). These bowls usually end up costing $15 and contain more than you should probably eat, and like Chipotle, avocado is extra!
I like to keep it simple and prepare my Keto Ahi Poke with minimal ingredients.
The best part of this version serving it an avocado half. Not only does it provide healthy fats, you also get to eat way more avocado than the extra you typically pay for at the poke restaurants. And just like the name says, this dish is keto-friendly and you won’t even miss the carbs!
Poke also traditionally uses soy sauce, but for my Keto Ahi Poke, I used tamari (affiliate link), or gluten-free soy sauce. To be honest, you can’t even tell the difference, and I’m happy that I can still serve this to my husband so he can reminisce about our Hawaiian moments too.
