Ahi Tuna Poke

If you can get your hands on some fresh ahi tuna then this is a meal you'd want to make for yourself. Originally from Hawaii, served as a lunch bowl, poke has gained tremendous popularity in cities like New York, Vancouver, LA, San Fran and Toronto!
The fun thing about making your own poke bowl is that you can use whatever ingredients you love! For me, I like a soy sauce and sesame oil dressing, rather than the spicy mayo options that I think tends to mask the taste of the fresh fish.

Give this recipe a try and let me know how you like it!

3/4 lbs sushi grade ahi (yellowfin) tuna, cubed
1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved 

1 tbsp soy sauce
1 avocado, cubed 
1/4 cup red onion, diced
2 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1 tsp black sesame seeds (optional, it gives I nice pop in colour!)
1 tbsp furikake 
1 tsp pimenton 

In a bowl, mix the soy sauce, sesame oil, oyster sauce and sesame seeds together. Add the sushi grade tuna, tomatoes, red onions, avocado and toss together. Add the furikake and a little more sesame seeds for garnish. Sprinkle the pimenton and serve with a side of brown or white rice.
