Try this easy, healthy Hawaiian dish: Poke, a salad of marinated raw fish.
@pokehbar Classic Poke
1 cup (250 mL) uncooked Calrose or short grain (sushi) rice
2 cup (500 mL) water
4 tsp (20 mL) light soy sauce
2 tsp (10 mL) sesame oil
1/2 lb (8 oz) raw ahi tuna, cut into bite-sized cubes
1/3 cup (80 mL) diced cucumbers
2 tbsp (30 mL) finely diced white onion
1 tbsp (15 mL) finely sliced green onion
2 tbsp (15 mL) roughly chopped macadamia nuts
1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) black and white sesame seeds
In a small saucepan over medium heat, add rice and water. Stir, cover and bring to a gentle boil. Turn heat down to low and continue to cook covered on a gentle simmer for 20 minutes, or until rice is tender and most of water is absorbed. Remove from heat, fluff with fork and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together soy sauce and sesame oil. Toss in tuna, cucumber, white and green onion, ensuring everything is evenly coated.
Transfer rice to serving bowl. Top with marinated tuna mixture. Garnish with macadamia nuts and sesame seeds just before serving.
Makes 2 servings.
