As the weather warms up this spring, I’m craving raw veggies more and more by the day.

We’ve been eating a lot of grilled chicken and fish, and a whole lot of salads. Don’t get me wrong… I love a good salad. Cool and crunchy with a tangy-sweet dressing. I don’t ever get tired of that.

MY OTHER RECIPES

My family on the other hand. Well, they do get tired of salad.

So I’ve been experimenting with other raw veggie laden quick-dinner options, that happen to be extremely healthy.

I shared my classic Hawaiian Poke Recipe several years ago. We make this recipe it on a regular basis, especially through the spring and summer, serving it as a appetizer, or as a healthy main dish with a salad on the side.

If you’ve never tried Poke, but are open to eating sushi, this is the dish for you!

In Hawaii, poke is everywhere.

This raw seafood salad is extremely popular and is made fresh daily all over the islands. So much so, Hawaiian grocery stores have dedicated poke counters (often in the place of southern side dishes we find in the deli) with a dozen or more fresh poke blends using local fish, squid, and shellfish.

When we visit Hawaii, we make it a goal to eat like the locals, picking up small containers of poke for a picnic lunch on the beach. We always try to sample as many varieties as we can during our stay.

Yet here in the mountains of North Carolina, my fresh fish options are a bit limited. Therefore I usually make poke with sashimi-grade ahi tuna.

I’m posting my Ahi Poke Bowl recipe today to prove a point… Quick healthy dinners don’t have to be boring.

I took my classic poke recipe and doctored it a tad, to intensify the flavors. That way, it can be served with aromatic jasmine rice, sliced radishes, delicate sprouts, and creamy avocado, lending a little bit of seasoning to each element.

The blend of fresh raw vegetables creates a marvelous contrast of textures in each Ahi Poke Bowl, while the warm fragrant rice provides a filling platform that brings the dish together.

My family has always loved Hawaiian poke. But this Ahi Poke Bowl recipe?

They are NUTS over it.

My son has asked for it twice in the last week. That’s saying a lot for a healthy dish with lots of raw ingredients.

Healthy Gluten Free Hawaiian Ahi Poke Bowl Recipe loaded with rice, fresh Hawaiian poke, avocado, radishes, sprouts, and seasoning.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups dried jasmine rice
  • 1 pound sashimi-grade ahi tuna
  • 3 tablespoons gluten free soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 – 1 teaspoon wasabi paste
  • 3/4 cup chopped green onions (green and white ends)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame seeds
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 bunch radishes
  • 1 cup sprouts (alfalfa, broccoli, bean)
  • Furikake Rice Seasoning

Directions:

  1. Pour the rice into a medium sauce pot. Add 4 cups of water. Cover and bring to a boil. Once boiling, stir well. Then cover and lower the heat to medium-low. Simmer for 15-20 minutes until all the water is absorbed and there are air holes in the top of the rice. Remove from heat, fluff the rice with a fork, then cover to keep warm and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, cut the ahi tuna steaks into 1/4 to 1/3 inch cubes. Place them in a bowl and add the soy sauce, honey, sesame, oil, and wasabi paste. Toss well to coat. Then stir in the chopped green onions and sesame seeds.
  3. Slice the avocado and radishes. Once the rice is cooked, assemble the bowls: Scoop a heaping portion of rice into 4-6 salad bowls. Spoon the ahi poke next to the rice and arrange sprouts and sliced radishes around the rice. Place several avocado slices over the top and sprinkle furikake on top.

NOTE: This Ahi Poke Bowl recipe can be made with brown rice or cooked quinoa as well.

    Hi! These look great. I have a husband who is averse to any and all uncooked meat even though he does like lightly seared tuna. Do you think that I could lightly sear the tuna before making this, or would that totally ruin it? I know there’s no way for you to know for sure, but I’d love to hear your opinion. THanks!
