I apologize in advance, because if you actually make this poke, you will never eat any other poke. So if you enjoy Safeway’s poke, your neighbor’s poke, or just the ability to eat poke at all those backyard luaus that you attend, just ignore this post. But if you want amazing, melt-in-your-mouth poke that even self-admitting ‘non-fish’ eaters enjoy, go ahead and give this a try. As in all recipes, feel free to adjust the ratios to taste.
Melt-in-your-Mouth Ahi Poke Recipe
- 5 parts sesame oil
- 2 parts chili oil
- 3 parts brown sugar
- 7 parts soy sauce
- Sashimi grade ahi (yellow-fin tuna) or aku, cut into bit sized chunks (approximately equal parts fish to sauce ratio, ex- 1 cup of fish to 1 cup sauce…)
- Garnishes- sesame seeds, chopped avocado, furikake, chopped onions, green onions
Mix the oils together. Add sugar and mix. Add soy sauce and mix. Chill for 20 minutes. Add fish and mix. Serve immediate or marinate an hour or as desired, garnishing before serving. Grab your own helping and then quickly back away from the bowl. Its like feeding sharks.
