Let’s face it: we all want to find that recipe that doesn’t take a lot of prep, takes great, and is healthy to boot. Lucky for you, I’ve found it. Ahi tuna poke is one of my go-to recipes because it such a simple dish and only requires a handful of ingredients. Even better, there are so many variations of poke, so you can customize it. Some people add in Sriracha for some heat, a little mayonnaise for creaminess or even seaweed for another texture, but personally I prefer this simple version. Get creative and do what you like best. Serve it with chips as an appetizer or on rice for a meal – it’s that versatile. The most important part of a poke recipe is the fish. You will want to purchase a very high quality sashimi grade ahi tuna steak. The most consistent place in South Lake Tahoe to get ahi is at Overland Meat Co. They have the freshest and most quality ahi I’ve found out here.
