Thank you to Sprouts Farmers Market for making today’s recipe possible.
Let’s be honest. Preparing raw fish at home can be a bit scary. That’s why I always tell people to purchase fish directly from the seafood counter at a trustworthy grocer. I personally like Sprouts Farmers Market for their selection. Being able to see what I’m getting puts my heart at ease.
So what should you look for when purchasing ahi for a poke bowl? First, you want to identify a cut that is red and contains grains that are visible to the eye. The grains should be a similar color to the steak, rather than white, which tends to result in a chewier texture. Also, observe the moisture around the fish. There should be none seeping out from the flesh. Overall, ahi is quite easy to buy because when it’s fresh, it looks fresh. When it’s not, believe me you will know.
Now on to the good stuff, how to make an ahi poke bowl you’ll be happy to eat and proud to share. Enjoy hungry friends!
- 1½ cups cooked jasmine rice
- 2 tsp fresh ginger, chopped
- 1 tsp roasted sesame seeds
- 1 tbsp white vinegar
- 1 ahi tuna steak, diced into ½-inch cubes
- 2 tsp Sprouts Organic Sriracha Sauce
- 1½ tsp Sprouts Organic Soy Sauce
- ½ tsp roasted sesame seeds
- 1 tbsp green onions, chopped
- 4 cups leafy greens, such as romaine lettuce
- 1 mango, skin and pit removed and diced small
- ½ cucumber, shaved into strips with a vegetable peeler
- ½ avocado, skin and seed removed and sliced thinly
- 2 radishes, sliced thinly
- 2 tbsp macadamia nuts, chopped
- 6 sheets Sprouts Teriyaki-Flavored Roasted Seaweed Snack
- Prepare the rice by combining all the ingredients in a bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set aside.
- Prepare the ahi by mixing all the ingredients in a bowl. Allow the mixture to chill covered in plastic wrap for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
- Assemble the dish by dividing the leafy greens evenly among two bowls and then equally distributing the rice in a mounded shape. Divide the remaining ingredients and ahi mixture between both bowls, making sure to sprinkle the chopped nuts last. The roasted seaweed snack can be tucked into the side of the greens for easy eating.
