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 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

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 adjust to your taste)

1 tbsp sesame seeds

1 avocado…optional


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
