Nunu's Kitchen: Hawaiian Tuna Poke

Feeling nostalgic for the delicious poke we had from Da Poke Shack in Hawaii, I attempted to recreate the dish back home in Vancouver. I must say it was rather successful *humble brag*.
Poke is basically cubed tuna sashimi marinated in soy sauce, however, you can add various other condiments to your taste.

250 g Ahi tuna steak (make sure it is sashimi grade!!!) - cubed
2 stalks green onion - diced
1 medium avocado - cubed
1/4 medium onion - diced
lime juice - to taste
sashimi soy sauce - to taste
sesame oil - to taste
nori and sesame furikake - to taste
Shichimi - to taste


  • Mix together avocado, onion, green onion, lime juice, furikake and shichimi;

  • cube the Ahi tuna steak;

  • Add cubed tuna to avocado and onion mixture;

  • Add sesame oil and soy sauce to taste; and

  • Eat.

Hope you enjoyed this recipe!!!
