Tuna & Avocado Poke

October 21, 2011

Author Notes: My take on Hawaiian poke, made with tuna, avocado, and a ginger-soy-sesame marinade. Perfect for a night you don't really want to cook, but way better than takeout!!Anna Watson Carl

Serves: 4

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Combine the tuna, shallot, ginger, jalapeno (if using), sesame oil, soy sauce, and cilantro in a medium bowl and toss gently to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours before serving.
  2. Just before serving, fold in the avocado. Season with salt and pepper to taste. (I found that it was flavorful enough without salt and pepper, but season according to your taste.)

Had my first poke a couple of weeks ago on the Big Island. Adding avocado sounds brilliant!
