If you can’t get enough of coconut, catch the next Hawaiian wave. Poke is a super fresh preparation of raw, sushi-grade fish—often tuna—simply chopped and lightly marinated with soy sauce and other seasonings. Served in a bowl over rice and piled with crisp veggies, ahi tuna makes an easy-breezy summer dinner.


1¼ cups (9 oz/280 g) short-grain brown rice
1 lb (500 g) sushi-grade ahi tuna, cut into ½-inch (12-mm) cubes
3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon sriracha (optional)
¼ cup (¾ oz/20 g) thinly sliced green onions
6 radishes, thinly sliced
¾ cup (4 oz/125 g) shredded carrot
1 avocado, pitted, peeled, and diced
8 snack-sized sheets seasoned dried nori seaweed, cut into ¼-inch (6-mm) strips
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds


In a saucepan, combine 2½ cups (20 fl oz/625 ml) water and the brown rice. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender, about 45 minutes or according to package instructions.

In a bowl, gently mix the ahi tuna, soy sauce, lime juice, sesame oil, sriracha, and green onions.

Spoon the rice into bowls. Top with the ahi tuna mixture, radishes, carrot, avocado, and seaweed. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.
