What’s poke?

I first tried poke (pronounced: pō-ˈkā) on my honeymoon in Hawaii many, a few years in the past. (MANY.) After researching native meals that I needed to pattern on our journey, I put collectively a listing. On the highest of the checklist? Poke—a diced uncooked fish (e.g., ahi tuna) dish tossed with sea salt or seasoned soy sauce, chopped kukui nuts, scallions, seaweed, and limu (a kind of brown algae). It’s like a sashimi salad with a sunny Hawaiian spin!

Poke isn’t simply present in Hawaii anymore. Lately, you possibly can stroll right into a poke bar on the mainland and blend and match a bunch of various poke variations with a myriad of toppings. Nonetheless, it’s robust to discover a Complete30 model whenever you’re consuming out, so I made a decision to make one myself. The end result: a super-easy, flavor-packed poke that includes a few of my favourite elements!

What makes this tuna poke Complete30-friendly?

Once you order poke at a restaurant, the sauce is often made with soy sauce—an ingredient to be prevented whereas on a Complete30 as a result of it incorporates soy and gluten. Nevertheless, for this home made model, you should utilize my paleo-friendly All-Goal Stir-Fry Sauce combined with my Complete30 Sriracha as a zingy and umami-packed substitute for the soy sauce. This tuna poke is Complete30-compliant and tastier than what you’d get whenever you order out—I promise!

To maintain this dish paleo and Complete30-friendly, I serve the poke as-is or on a mattress of salad greens or cooked cauliflower rice. It’s also possible to wrap it up in toasted seaweed (e.g. SeaSnax is one among my favourite manufacturers) for a tasty hand-held meal!

How do you supply the tuna?

Very rigorously! You can purchase sushi- or sashimi-grade tuna at a Japanese or seafood market that you simply belief. When unsure, ask the fishmonger for suggestions and don’t be afraid to ask questions on their dealing with practices, storage, processing, and turn-over. Sushi-grade tuna is costly (and also you don’t wish to get sick!) so do your analysis earlier than shopping for uncooked tuna. Additionally, it’s best to at all times deliver an ice pack and an insulated bag with you so the tuna stays chilled till you possibly can put it in your house fridge.

Can I exploit cooked protein on this dish?

Positively! This dish tastes nice with cooked seafood like shrimp, salmon, or octopus.

Are you able to make it forward of time?

Probably not. I combine up the tuna poke proper earlier than I serve it so the dish is as recent as attainable. For those who do make it forward, put it within the fridge instantly and eat inside Four hours. Security first, folks!
