This is my go-to recipe for shoyu ahi-tuna, perfect to add to your favorite Poke Bowl.
Shoyu Ahi Poke is the traditional Hawaiian dish of raw fish seasoned with soy sauce and sesame oil. You don't have to wait for your next vacation to Hawaii, you can do it yourself, it's easy to do! The most important thing is the quality of the fish. If you like it spicy you can use this recipe to make these Spicy Tuna Poke Bowls.
I am obsessed with all tuna, which is why I love to poke. This traditional recipe is from the Poke cookbook that contains lots of poke recipes, ranging from traditional to some creative versions.
You can make this with any other sashimi-class fish, such a salmon instead, or for a vegetarian tear setting, swap tuna for the diced watermelon or boiled beets. Then pick a base and add your top fractions!
Poke Bowl toppings

- Cube Mango
- Dice with pineapple

- Sweet corn
- Sliced jalapeño
- Fried onion
- Macadamia nuts
- Micro Greens

A few ways to serve poke:
- Fill a bowl with vegetables. In the picture here, I added edamame, carrots, shredded cabbage, cucumbers, avocado and furikaki (this one is so good that I put it on everything!).
- You can also serve poke over steamed brown rice, black rice, sushi rice or baby vegetables.
- Add some pickled vegetables such as ginger or kimchi.
- Like salad over peppery vegetables such as ruccola or mizuna

Ahi tuna is mostly used in poke, but salmon, shrimp and other fish species can be used. The best fish to buy for poke is fresh, sashimi tuna. But if you only have access to frozen, it can work too.
