Recipe Alert: “been poking around for the perfect tuna poke bowl recipe?”

 Ingredients:

  • 1.25 lb Sushi grade tuna
  • 6 – 8 baby bok choy
  • 2 packages of shiitake mushrooms
  • 2 avocados
  • 2 jicama
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • Avocado “mayo”
  • Hot Sauce
  • Raw honey
  • Liquid Aminos (our go to gluten free, low sodium alternative to soy sauce)
  • Fish sauce
  • Black and white sesame seeds

Instructions:

  1. Begin by dicing the tuna, avocado, and jicama into cubes (think bite-size). Set cubes aside in separate bowls.
  2. In a wok (sauté pan will work as well) heat 1 tablespoon of avocado oil (feel free to use any oil). Once pan is hot, add the bok choy. Drizzle 2-3 tablespoons of the liquid aminos and sauté for about 5 – 8 minutes. Once the bok choy softens, it is done.
  3. In a wok (sauté pan will work as well) heat 1 tablespoon of avocado oil (feel free to use any oil) add sliced shiitake mushrooms. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cook for about 4 – 5 minutes, until the mushrooms soften
  4. Chop the cilantro finely and add it to the diced tuna.
  5. In a bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of sesame oil, 2 tablespoons of honey, 4 tablespoons of liquid aminos, a few drops of fish sauce, and garlic powder. Pour the sauce over the tuna and cilantro mixture.
  6. For the spicy mayo sauce (optional) – mix together siracha sauce and avocado mayo (add as much siracha as you can handle!!) If you want to channel your inner blogger put the “mayo” mixture into a squeeze bottle and drizzle over the tuna (got to make it look lit for that insta post)

Now, time to assemble!

Start with a nice size bowl and get creative no matter how you put it together it will taste awesome!


Insider Tip:

We like to portion out the bok choy first, next to it goes the mushrooms, then the chunks of jicama (this really adds a fresh crunchy element to the dish), and lastly the cubed avocado. In the center, we spoon out a nice amount of the tuna mixture. We finish off the bowl with a sprinkle of black and white sesame seeds and our spicy “mayo” sauce drizzled over the tuna.

Make sure to snap some pics for your friends because that bowl will be on point!

Hope you enjoy!
