Preparation time: 15 minutes
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon sesame seeds, plus more for garnish
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 pound frozen sushi-grade tuna, thawed and cut into bite-size pieces
2-3 scallions, thinly sliced
Cooked brown rice, at room temperature
Optional toppings, such as seaweed salad, pickled ginger, sriracha mayo, carrots, cucumbers or cherry tomatoes.
- Whisk together the soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, sesame seeds and red pepper flakes in a medium mixing bowl. Add the cubed tuna and scallions; gently stir together to dress the tuna. Marinate for 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, pit and cube the avocado (the chunks should be of a similar size to the tuna). Add to the tuna and gently mix together to distribute evenly.
- To serve, scoop rice into bowls, top with tuna poke and any additional desired toppings.
