If you have been missing your favorite sushi spot, here’s a no-fuss recipe to get your fix at home. These Spicy Tuna Poke Bowls have all the flavor of your favorite roll without any of the hassle! Loaded with lean protein, veggies, and organic brown rice, this is a bowlful of goodness that you can feel great about feeding your family.
Place the rice and the water in a pot, with butter, and bring to a boil.
Cover with tight fitting lid. Reduce heat to maintain a low simmer, and cook for 45 minutes.
Remove from heat (keep covered) and steam for 10 minutes. Fluff with fork and serve.
While the rice is cooking, in a small bowl combine the rice vinegar, salt, and lime juice.
Once the rice is ready, pour the seasoned vinegar over the rice, and lightly combine.
In a bowl combine marinade ingredients, including the green onions and toasted sesame seeds.
Using a sharp knife, cut the tuna into 1/4" thick cubes, and drizzle the marinade over the tuna. Stir well.
Place 1 cup of cooked rice into bowls, add tuna, and toppings of your choice. Garnish with sesame seeds and greens.
Serve with soy sauce and Sriracha on the side.
“Sushi grade” or “sashimi grade” are not terms that are regulated by the FDA or USDA. As such, I recommend purchasing any fish that you intend to eat raw from a reputable fishmonger. For more information on raw fish, check out this very informative article.
For food safety and quality, I recommend eating the tuna poke within 24 hours of the fish being purchased. That said, you can make life a little easier by prepping your vegetables, tuna marinade and sushi rice vinegar ahead of time.
Please note that consuming raw or undercooked meats, poultry, seafood, shellfish, or eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness. Pregnant women, young children and anyone with a weakened immune system should take particular note of this risk.
