1. 4 green onions, minced
2. 1/2 tsp sugar
3. 1/4 cup macadamia nuts, finely chopped (optional)
4. 1 avocado cubed
5. 1/4 cup dried seaweed
6. 1/2 lb. sashimi-grade tuna (maguro or ahi) cubed (about 1/2″ – 3/4″)
7. 1 tsp sesame oil (I used 1 tbsp)
8. The best salt in the house
9. 2 tsp soy sauce (I used 2 tbsp)
10. 2 tsp toasted sesame seeds (I used 2 tbsp)
I added more sauce than the recipe she gave me because I wanted to make sure everything was completely coated, but if you just want a light coating of sauce, I’d stick to the original amounts.
Toss everything together except the salt. Sprinkle the salt over the poke and serve over rice. For some extra added spice, sprinkle in some red pepper flakes. Actually, Ben and I did a downpour of red pepper flakes rather than a sprinkle because we like it spicy.
This recipe comes from Jozen of Lola’s Girl. Jozen is such a sweetie and we have been blog friends forever. I’m hoping she’ll make her way down south (or maybe we’ll go up north), so that one day we can actually meet. She totally knows how much I love sushi, so when she shared this recipe with me, I knew I wanted to try it out and share it with you. Ben and I aren’t typically a fan of raw tuna because the flavor is a little too mild for us, but in this dish, it was fantastic. The different flavors blended so well together and I especially loved the crunch you get from the macadamia nuts. We made this for our little date/movie night we had in our room on Friday night. I’m pretty sure this will be made for another date/movie night soon. I do still have some macadamia nuts leftover, so those need to be put to good use.

This one was definitely a hit!
