Tuna Poke Perfection

This may not be my most cost-efficient recipe (due to the price of high quality tuna), but it is super simple and super impressive. The most important part of the whole process is speaking with the nice people at the fish counter to ensure that the tuna you're purchasing can be eaten raw and in sushi form. Once you've double and triple checked that - you're good to go!

  • Soy sauce
  • Toasted sesame oil (if you don't already own this, don't worry about it!)

  1. Start cooking your brown rice according to instructions and get that process going.
  2. Add your soy sauce, sesame oil and seeds in a medium mixing bowl.
  3. Cut your tuna into cute little cubes and place in the medium mixing bowl. Marinade for 5 minutes.

  5. Cut your scallions into small parts. 
  6. Cut your cucumber into thin slices.
  7. Scoop your rice into bowls, add the tuna and avocado cubes, top with sesame seeds, scallions and cucumber pieces.
