Recipe Notes

Get the best quality, sashimi grade tuna.

I like it marinated, but some people can’t tell the difference or prefer not marinated. If you’re too hungry and can’t wait, go ahead and just eat it without marinating.

You can add all seasonings including spicy sauce (mayonnaise and sriracha) all at once and mix well before marinating. (I added spicy sauce after marinating)

Traditional poke has limu and kukui nuts in it. I couldn’t find them at the grocery stores near me. If you can find them, put them.

Instead of regular white rice, you can use brown rice or sushi rice. I like sushi rice the best with poke.
