Hawaiian Ahi Poke (Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

Hawaiian Ahi Poke (Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy Free)We got married in Hawaii some years back and try to return there every year or so. I think if all the stars would align, we would probably retire there one day when we’re old and creaky. It has the beach and sea like what I grew up with in Fiji but is still America so there is shopping and American currency 🙂

<3 MauiWhenever, I go there, I always end up eating copious amounts of Ahi Poke. It’s raw Yellowfin tuna marinated in a yummy Asian-influenced marinade. You can buy this by the bucket loads at the grocery store. Unfortunately, the main ingredient is soy sauce which we don’t eat anymore on Paleo but Coconut Aminos makes a very decent substitute.

This pregnant lady had a craving today so there is a batch of this in my fridge now (It’s my third baby, I ain’t afraid of raw fish). It’s very easy to put together. Make sure you use the freshest ingredients and you will not be disappointed.

Find yourself some quality ahi tuna steaks. If you can get sashimi-grade, that would be best. I had 1.5 lb of steaks.

Cut your steaks into bite sized pieces.

Next, find yourself a whole shallot. If you don’t have shallots handy, a small yellow onion will do too. Chop it very fine.

Then, mix in your ahi pieces and you can marinate for at least 30 minutes.
