Science has demonstrated that there’s never a bad time for sushi. Need something light and refreshing on a summer day? Sushi. Something filling in the winter? Sushi. Something quick and healthy that won’t kill your macros? Yep…sushi. What happens when your favorite fish flaying food spot is closed? Easy, you make your own at home! This easy at-home recipe is a lot more cost effective, and is something the whole family can get involved with. And because you are the iron chef behind this recipe, you can also alter the ingredients to fit your macros. I found sushi grade, wild caught tuna at my local grocery store, frozen. Whole Foods regularly has fresh sushi grade tuna too! Rice= carbs, tuna= lean protein, avocado mayo= fat. Add all that together and the result is a fresh, delicious meal for any occasion.
1 lb sushi grade tuna, cubed
1 cup English cucumber, diced
¼ cup shredded carrots
1 container seaweed salad
½ mango, diced
½ avocado, peeled and diced
2 cups rice, cooked and cooled
Poke Bowl Sauce:
2 TBS coconut aminos
1 TBS sesame oil
1 TBS rice vinegar
1 tsp honey
¼ cup avocado mayo
1 TBS sriracha, more or less depending on heat desired
Optional Toppings for Creating a Bowl:
Black Sesame Seeds
- Mix together the ingredients for the poke sauce, and then toss the tuna in it.
- Mix together the avocado mayo and sriracha.
- Next, you will create your bowl.
- Put rice in the bottom of your bowl, and then top with the fresh veggies and fruit. Drizzle the sriracha mayo on top, and sprinkle your favorite garnishes on top!
