Tuna Poke Bowls

A gorgeous and delicious deconstructed sushi roll.

To me, poke bowls are the best form of sushi. You see the beauty of the ingredients as you eat them and you get to pick up what you like with what you prefer in the same bite. Every bite is customizable – so good.

This tuna only recipe mixture goes a long way. I make this same tuna for my tuna crispy rice cakes and my tuna stacks. It is legendary delicious and so simple to make.

The absolute beauty of this dish – beyond the fact that it is a gorgeous work of art aesthetically speaking – is that you don’t have to include all of the ingredients here to make an enjoyable and delicious bowl. I don’t always have the kelp noodles and salmon caviar in my kitchen. And that’s okay, your dish will still come out amazing!

You can use any rice here (like brown rice, jasmine or basmati) but I highly recommend grabbing some sushi rice. It definitely makes it more authentic tasting.

My favorite part is the spicy mayo. I got turned on to Kewpie mayo and never looked back. It really gives the sauce a more sushi-esque feel. I have ordered it on Amazon and they now carry it at Costco too.
