Murray discovered Poke in Hawaii & never looked back! He has tried different recipes over the years but has settled on this one. I first posted this last year, but I have updated the recipe…
He likes to buy tuna for his Poke at our favourite fish store in Edmonton, Ocean Odyssey Inland. I will put a link to their website here if you want to find out about them. Occasionally they have fresh tuna but this time Murray used a piece of frozen tuna from the store
He used a recipe that he found on the internet….
*** Murray goes up to Great Slave Lake to fish in the summer & makes this with the fish that he catches!
I am not going to give you food safety tips on eating raw fish…I am not an expert. You can find out information regarding this for your own knowledge. Proper food handling & refrigeration is very important.
Here is the link to the website to the fish store in Edmonton
Here is Murray’s recipe
Murray’s Ahi Tuna Poke
1/2 lb fresh ahi tuna
2 green onions, finely chopped
2 tbsp soya sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
3 pinches of coarse salt, or to taste
1/4 tsp chili powder (or alternately you can use chili garlic sauce..that is what the recipe said house… 1 tbsp but this was too spicy..so adjust to your taste)
1 tbsp sesame seeds
I think you should try to work quickly to keep the fish cold while preparing it & then put into the fridge immediately until serving. Please look up the proper way to prepare & eat raw fish before you make this
- On a clean work service, cut the Tuna into bite size pieces
- Add the green onions, soy sauce, sesame oil, salt, pepper & chilis powder & sesame seeds
- Mix well so that all of the tuna pieces are coated with the seasonings
You can add some cut up avocado if you would like…totally optional
