Being a mom, business owner, and generally just living in a bubble, I was introduced to poke bowls within the last, like, 3 weeks. No lie. Even though I’m way behind on what’s cool, I’m so glad I was introduced to them. They are light, refreshing, and absolutely delicious! The downside though….I can’t have them made for me soy or gluten free. Now comes the upside…making them is super easy, still absolutely delicious and free of all the things I can’t have. This beautiful bowl is a Pineapple Mango Ahi Tuna Poke. It’s a delicious mix of sweet and spicy. Perfect to enjoy on these hot summer days.
The Poke Bowl Recipe
For this gorgeous recipe, you will need 8 ounces of Ahi tuna steak, 1 ripe mango, 1 cup ripe pineapple, 1 red bell pepper, cilantro, green onions, and 1 Haas avocado. You will also need 2 cups cooked jasmine rice. Then for the amazing sauce, you need coconut aminos, rice cooking wine, sesame seed oil, and chili paste.
Start cooking the rice, following the directions on the bag. While that gets going, make your sauce in a small bowl and set it aside. Then the fun part, chopping, and dicing. First up, cut your tuna into 1-inch cubes and place in a medium-sized bowl. Take your mango and cut it off the seed. while it’s still in the skin, use your knife and slice in a tic-tac-toe pattern but really, really small pieces. Once done, use a spoon to remove the pieces from the skin and place in the bowl with your tuna. Cut your pineapple and bell pepper into small pieces as well. Then rough chop your cilantro and thinly slice your green onions. Add it all to the bowl with the tuna. Pour on the sauce and mix well with a spoon. Set aside and let the flavors blend while you check on your rice.
Once the rice is done, split it between two bowls. Next up top each bowl with half of the tuna fruit mixture. Next up, cut your avocado in half, slice with a knife and scoop out with a spoon. Place half of the avocado into each bowl. Top with sesame seeds and enjoy with a spoon.
Viola! So easy, minimal cooking, and ready to be enjoyed.
