The Traditional Hawaiian Shoyu Ahi Poke
Updated: Mar 24
Ahi poke is a traditional hawaiian dish that consists of cubed raw tuna that is marinated in soy sauce and sesame oil. It is often served with rice and other vegetables. This dish is simple, but it is incredibly flavorful and delicious. If you are looking for a healthy and tasty meal, then you should definitely try making ahi poke at home!
If you want to make ahi poke, then you will need to start by marinating the tuna in soy sauce and sesame oil. You can do this for as long as you like, but I recommend marinating it for at least an hour. Once the tuna is properly marinated, then you will need to cube it into small pieces.
After the tuna is cubed, then you can start to assemble your poke bowl. I like to start with a base of rice, and then add the tuna, vegetables, and any other toppings that I like. Once everything is in the bowl, then you can enjoy your delicious and healthy meal!
One thing to keep in mind when making ahi poke is that it is important to use fresh tuna. This dish is all about the quality of the ingredients, so you want to make sure that you are using the best possible fish. If you can, then try to find sushi-grade tuna at your local grocery store. Otherwise, you can also use frozen tuna that has been thawed.
Another thing to keep in mind is that ahi poke is best when it is served fresh. This means that you should not make it too far in advance. If you need to make it ahead of time, then I recommend making it no more than an hour before you plan on eating it.
Ahi poke is a delicious and healthy dish that is perfect for a quick meal. If you are looking for something different than your usual lunch or dinner, then you should definitely try making ahi poke at home! Trust me, it is worth the effort!
