Tuna poke


Tuna and avocado are such a great pair that I always put them together such as in sushi and poke.  They both have mild flavors and similar soft and oily texture that will literally melt in your mouth. 

Tuna poke is a great dish for those who love tuna and avocado as much as I do and don’t want to spend too much time on rolling sushi at home.  It is so simple that the whole dish can be done in 5 minutes from start to finish; but the flavor is so great that you want to make it again and again.

10 oz sashimi grade tuna
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/4 onion, thinly sliced
1 to 2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
2 to 3 tablespoons soy sauce
green onion, chopped or sliced
minced ginger
1/4 teaspoon honey
1 to 2 teaspoons teriyaki sauce (optional)
1/2 avocado
sea salt / kosher salt to taste
freshly cooked rice (optional)



Thaw the sashimi grade tuna in refrigerator.  Pat dry with paper towel and then cut into bite size cubes.  

Add onion, toasted sesame seeds, soy sauce, green onion, ginger, honey, teriyaki sauce and saltBTW, you can tell I use frozen green onion here.  The fresh one will do just fine.  I always grow a lot of green onion in our garden in spring time and harvest them in fall.  Rinse them well under running water; chop them up and bag them with Ziploc bags.  They will last the whole winter and it is quite convenient for me too O(∩_∩)O~

Mix with a wooden spoon.

Remove avocado’s skin and seed.  Cut the fresh into bite size too.  Gently fold into the tuna.

It is very easy and simple.  Try it yourself!  O(∩_∩)O~
