Murray’s Ahi Tuna Poke

                                                         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

Ingredients

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

fresh pepper

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

1 avocado…optional

Method

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

  1. On a clean work service, cut the Tuna into bite size pieces
  2. Add the green onions, soy sauce, sesame oil, salt, pepper & chilis powder & sesame seeds 
  3. 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 optionalsjxFpStqsh3hZQntPHgJMLH20USS9Kv15HmZkmoug9E0nDqTtSKa1mzQDIylVpwPbASBaGSRgO6EHdWORTD2wOesDBTPtTuCpFgJAHlZ6cw

Quick Salmon in a Thai Green Curry

What is the big difference between Green & Red Thai curry ? The difference is in the type of chilis that are used… red chilis or green chilis. The flavours differ in that the Red Thai Curry paste is a bit spicier & the Green Thai Curry is a bit on the sweeter side. I have never used Thai Green curry paste before…  for no particular reason, just the recipes I have made use Red Thai curry, so I was interested in finding out if we would like this recipe..we did! Very quick & simple to make…. this is a good recipe if you do not have too much time to cook… or even if you do…it is delish!

Fish Tacos at Home

I love fish tacos!  They  are so easy & quick to make at home & any fish can be used which makes this dish so versatile! You can even use a frozen breaded fish fillet if you want to! I have been known to do that when I can’t find any fresh fish that I want to have!

This recipe makes 6 fish tacos  but it is very easy to adapt to any number of tacos that you want to make!

Here is the recipe!

Fish Tacos 

Ingredients 

1 cup Flour

1/2 cup Cornflake crumbs

1 tbsp Chili powder

Salt & pepper to taste

6 fish fillets ***you can use any fish you like

Oil

1/4 of a head of lettuce, thinly sliced

1 tomato chopped

1 avocado , mashed

Salsa

1 lime, cut into wedges

Fresh corn tortillas

Sauce:

1/4 cup chili sauce

1/2 cup mayo

Method

1. Mix the flour, Cornflake crumbs & chili powder together in a flat bowl or pie plate  wide enough so you can coat the fish in it

2 Heat some oil in a frying pan, if non-stick you don’t need much oil, if it is  a stainless steel frying pan you will need more oil. You need enough so that the fish cooks nicely

3. Coat the fish with the flour/crumb mixture. Cook in the frying pan until one side is brown then gently turn the fish over. It will most likely fall apart, but this is ok since it is going to used in a taco.. continue cooking all the filets until completely cooked through. This does not take long since they are so thin.

4. Have all of the toppings, the lettuce, tomatoe, avacado, salsa,  in serving dishes so that when you are ready to put your tacos together everything is right there

5. In a small bowl, mix the chilli sauce & the mayo togehter

6. Wipe out the frying pan or using a clean one, warm the tortillas up according to the instructions on the pkg. The ones I used just called for them to be warmed on each side for a few seconds in a dry pan until soft

Now put it all together!

Lay the tortilla on a plate. This is the order that I layered the ingredients

*tortilla

*spread some avacado on it

* lettuce

*tomato

*sauce

* fish

*salsa

*more sauce

*put some fresh lime juice on top

Have some serviettes ready!!! This is drippy!!
