I recently discovered I like raw fish. And by like, I mean love. Up until a few months ago, sushi meant California rolls and shrimp tempura rolls. Raw fish? No, thank you! One night a bunch of my friends and I went out for sushi and after some coaxing I ate a piece of my friend's roll that was basically just a mass of raw fish. I found it absolutely delicious. Which is fantastic because if you have ever gone paleo, you know how boring meat and veggies can get. What's for dinner tonight? Steak and salad. Or chicken and vegetables. Whoop-dee-frickin'-doo. I've started mixing things up by whipping up a quick and easy poke bowl. Poke is a Hawaiian dish that consists of cubed ahi that is marinated in soy sauce, green onion, sesame oil, roasted kukui nuts, sea salt, and chili peppers and it's usually served over rice. Not quite Paleo though. So I substituted some of the ingredients to make it compliant. Here you go, enjoy!
1-2 lbs. Ahi tuna steaks (sushi grade if you can get it)
1/2 cup green onion, finely sliced
1 TBSP sesame seeds
3 cloves of garlic, minced
4-6 TBSP coconut aminos
1/4 cup chopped macadamia nuts
sea salt to taste
Optional: 2 tsp sesame oil (depending on who you ask sesame oil is not paleo, but neither is eating a lot fruit because of the sugar...take it or leave it.)
1. Wash and pat dry tuna steaks.
2. Cube tuna into bite sized pieces.
3. Mix all the marinade ingredients together, add tuna and mix until the tuna is coated.
4. Cover and let it marinate for at least 30 minutes.
While I was waiting for the tuna to marinate, I made a salad with chopped romaine lettuce, mango, and sliced cucumbers. As soon as 30 minutes was up (I was starving, I couldn't wait any longer) I topped my salad with the poke and drizzled more coconut aminos over the top and voila, dinner was ready.
