Spicy Tuna Poke

We have been obsessed with tuna poke recently. This delicious spicy tuna poke is such an easy meal to prepare in those lazy summer days. We've made this recipe three times in the last month! 


1 pound sushi grade ahi tuna 
1/4 cup of mayonnaise
1-2 tablespoons of Sriracha  or other (optional)
(instead of these I used a habanero flavoured aioli)
1 inch ginger finely grated
2 cloves of garlic, finely grated
1 small shallot finely chopped
1 avocado chopped coursely
1/4 cup cilantro
1-2 green onions finely diced
1 tablespoon of sesame seeds to garnish (optional)


1- Cut tuna into 1 to 1/2 inch cubes and set aside

2- Mix the mayonnaise, sriracha, shallots, ginger, garlic and shallots together.

3- Pour this mixture over the tuna and gently fold the avocado and green onions to combine.

4- Sprinkle sesame seeds over top

5- Serve within 30 minutes of combining. 

You can serve this as an appetizer to four people. You can also add rice or a spring salad to make it a delicious main. 

I can't stop raving about this poke. The flavours are bold and buttery at the same time! It's also keto and (somewhat) paleo friendly. 

Happy Monday, friends!

  6. I'm a huge fan of ahi tuna sashimi but love the tuna pokes I've tried at different restaurants. Your recipe makes it sound even more delicious with the addition of avocado and cilantro for more flavor. Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis
