Tuna Poke Bowl Recipe

In this recipe, we created our own take on the traditional Hawaiian raw fish dish called Poke (or Tako in Japanese). We combined island-inspired ingredients like nori and pomegranate seeds to create a delicious twist on your typical tuna.

Tuna Poke Bowl

This is a simple and quick recipe that’s perfect for lunch or a light dinner. The recipe is also pescatarian-friendly, a great Paleo option for vegetarian diners who include fish in their diet.

Despite the ease of putting this recipe together, there is a bit of work required when gathering your ingredients. Finding raw, sashimi-grade tuna that’s ethically sourced can be a bit of a challenge – your best bet will be to visit a local seafood market or Asian grocery.

In a pinch, you can use plain canned tuna (this is also a great option for those who aren’t quite comfortable eating raw fish). Nori is another ingredient that can be tough to locate – these seaweed sheets can be found in most grocery stores in the Asian section.

Traditionally Poke is served as an appetizer or entrée. If eating it as a main course, try adding macadamia nuts and serving the Poke over cauliflower rice as a Paleo twist for a more substantial meal.

You can also add fresh vegetables (cucumbers, avocados, hot peppers, etc.) to your liking, making it a great option for someone who follows an Autoimmune Protocol and may not tolerate seeds.
