Poke is the Hawaiian word for "to slice or cut" It's said the Ahi Poke Bowl was created by the fishermen who would take the leftover scraps of fish, dice them up, season them, and eat them raw. Then, however, the bowl was brought to life. It's now trendy, with different versions of the dish seen worldwide.
There are two key simple ingredients in a poke bowl. The objective is to be sure they are fresh and of the highest quality. These two ingredients are, of course, sashimi-grade ahi tuna and perfectly cooked and seasoned sushi rice. The rest of the bowl can be adjusted with different toppings and your preferred sauces or condiments. Accompanying this ahi poke bowl, there are some crispy cucumber ribbons, seaweed salad, sliced avocado, radishes, and shaved red cabbage. The tuna is tossed with soy sauce, toasted sesame seeds, oil, sambal, scallions, pickled ginger, and cilantro.
