This Tuna Poke Bowl recipe is crafted for keto seafood lovers. This delicious tropical dish makes you feel as though you’re ocean side.

Poke Bowls are more than just a trending food, they’re health filled delicacies. Each bite creates a mouthwatering sensation, with tuna that melts on your tongue like cotton candy, and avocado that leaves you tingling with savory joy. The delicious fundamentals of this dish are coated with sesame seeds, which add a crunch and complimentary taste. Coconut aminos and sesame oil drizzle over the dish delicately without disturbing, but rather enhancing the taste. Parsley can be dashed along the edges of the bowl for a decorative touch. While the parsley does add a visual appeal to the eye, its addition to the recipe is more than just for looks. It contributes its own impressive flavors. This homemade poke bowl is healthier and cheaper than anyone that can be restaurant bought. An additional perk is that since this meal is made at home, you have full control over the portion size and the ingredients you use since you can hand select them at your grocery store. This ensures that it will be up to par and leave no room for disappointment.

Background:

It’s a warm summer day, the sun is shining but your stomach is yelling for food. It’s an Autumn day and the first leaves are making fall breaking ground for the season. You’re at home on a cold winter afternoon, the only way you’re slipping out of bed is with a pair of fuzzy socks coddling your feet. Spring has sprung and the birds are chirping, buds are blossoming and the day is in full bloom. Whatever the case may, a bite of this poke bowl transcends your current experience and automatically sends you tanning on a waterfront vacation that is much needed any day, but especially during these quarantine days that all seem to blur into one. The portion is easy to make for one and even easier to double or triple for a larger serving size or for a larger audience. Restaurants can sell this one time meal for around $15.

However, your money can go a lot further by buying the ingredients and making it at home. You get a bang for your buck because by purchasing the ingredients you can get at least 2-3 homemade poke bowl servings from around the same $15 that’d normally buy you one. This dish has an undeniable excellence, even while preparing the meal it is hard to push through without indulging. However, lucky for us it doesn’t take long to prepare at all. Not to mention the ingredients go a long way. The most limiting item is the tuna, but even then four ounces allows you about three meals. The sauces and sesame seeds last even longer, so if you decide to make the meal again in a month, the non-expirable ingredients will still be going strong.

Tuna Poke Bowl Ingredients:

First, let’s chat ingredients…

  • Yellow Fin Tuna Fillet: I purchase 4oz of a tuna fillet. I use ⅓ every time I make the dish, thus allowing me enough for three individual meals.
  • Coconut Aminos: Use 1 tablespoon of coconut aminos
  • Cilantro/Parsley: I use parsley to line the bowl and then to decorate the top with. You can use the desired amount here. 
  • Avocado: Use ½ an avocado. However, if you want a larger portion you can use more.
  • Sesame Oil: Use 2 tablespoons of sesame oil 
  • Sesame Seeds: Use 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds
  • Salt: Use a dash of salt 

How to Make a Tuna Poke Bowl:

  • Prep the Tuna. Remove the tuna from its packaging then cut ⅓ of it. After cutting the ⅓ proceed to cut it into small squares. 
  • Prep the Avocado. Cut your avocado in half. Then cut the half you are going to use into slices and then squares while it is still in its shell. After, use a spoon to remove the chopped avocado
  • Add ingredients to the bowl. Wash the parsley or cilantro and then add the desired amount to the bowl. I usually coat the rims with it for decorative purposes. Then add in the chopped tuna and avocado. After, measure one tablespoon of sesame seeds and add them to the bowl. Then measure one tablespoon of coconut aminos and two tablespoons of sesame oil and add it to the bowl. Top off the dish with a dash of salt.

NOTES:

You can exclude any ingredients you aren’t fond of and add in any additional toppings you like!
