I can say without a doubt that just a few years ago I would not be talking about let alone making and eating raw fish. This is my first time making a poke bowl and it was SO good. I am looking forward to making it again. So are my husband and daughter; we all really enjoyed dinner the other night.
I fried up the wontons in a little oil after cutting them into triangles. We chose mango, avocado, pickled ginger and I didn’t have scallions so I added chives. I think it could be even better with scallions.
Tuna Poke is a Hawaiian salad of raw tuna marinated in soy sauce, sesame oil, and a few other flavorings. We had ours over sushi rice with some yummy toppings. I will share with you how I made mine and you pick and choose how you make yours.
I hope you all enjoy the last weekend of summer – not technically just seems that way!
