Albacore Poke


Note: Samuels Seafood has been doing home delivery and you can get fresh albacore for around $6 per lb. This is cheaper than canned tuna and it makes fantastic poke

  • 1 lb fresh albacore, cleaned of skin and fibrous parts, diced

  • 2-3 tablespoons toasted sesame oil

  • 3-4 tablespoons shoyu (to taste)

  • 2 stalks green onion, sliced thin

  • 1 teaspoon ginger, grated

  • pinch of sea salt or kosher salt

Other suggestions: chili pepper powder or flakes, diced sweet onion, shiso (dried or fresh or in furikake form), seaweed


Combine and serve over warm rice
