We made Ahi Poke, a Hawaiian tuna tartar recipe for the perfect refreshing and light dinner. You may have noticed that we haven't been cooking much lately, which is the result of New York City being extremely slow getting to our gas meter. We have a gas stove, but no gas hooked up yet and therefore we haven't been able to cook, but rumor has it they are coming this Thursday to get us set up. Anyway, we made Ahi Poke, which requires no cooking, just a few simple prep steps! Find the recipe below!
- 1 pound of sushi grade Ahi Tuna
- Handful of cilantro
- 1 scallion
- 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
- 1 teaspoon grated ginger
- 1 white onion
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- Pinch of Hawaiian salt
- Pinch of pepper
- Server with rice
Thinly slice the green portion of one scallion and 1/2 of the white onion. Grate one teaspoon of ginger and chop a handful cilantro. Mix together. Cube your Ahi tuna and mix in with the other ingredients. Add the soy sauce, sesame oil, sesame seeds, salt and pepper and mix everything together. Set aside in the fridge for about an hour.
While the Ahi Poke is in the fridge, prepare the rice according to the instructions on the package. You can also serve with a refreshing ginger salad if you'd like as well!

*Note: if you're wondering how we cooked the rice, I used an electric kettle, which was very interesting, but worked nonetheless!
