flailing in my kitchen v3

How can I be sad when I have breakfast, lunch, and dinner?

I love poke. It's one of my favorite things to have for a meal, but it's something that I always thought I had to go to a restaurant (or Hawaii) for. But as I was scrolling through food blogs, I stumbled across Ahi Poke Bowls with Pineapple and Avocado from How Sweet Eats. And I thought, if she can prepare poke at home, I can do it too!

I went to a bunch of different grocery stores, and I guess I shouldn't have been surprised that most of them didn't have sushi-grade fish. Even Whole Foods didn't have any! I also learned that sushi-grade isn't even a standard thing. It's just the grocery store's way of saying "I think this is good enough for sushi." Luckily I was able to find some "sushi-grade" tuna for $10.99/lb. I bought just under a pound, which is way more fish than you need for two people.

Way better than restaurant poke.

It's a good thing we like raw fish so much. I just chopped up whatever veggies and fruit I had that made sense. We did a make-your-own poke bowl with these ingredients (listed in the same order as in the photo):

  • Furikake
  • Imitation crab
  • Carrots
  • Cilantro
  • Sushi rice
  • Ahi tuna
  • Cucumbers
  • Cara cara oranges
  • Jalepeño peppers
  • Green onions
  • Ginger soy sauce
My sister's bowl.

My bowl.

I definitely want to have a poke party with friends at some point.
