Spicy Ahi Poke Bowl Using Trader Joe’s Sesame-Crusted Hardwood Smoked Ahi Tuna

Since moving away from Hawaii this past April I’ve really been craving one of my favorite Hawaiian foods- the poke bowl.  For those of you who are unfamiliar, poke (pronounced poke-A) is typically raw ahi tuna tossed in a sauce and it’s often served over warm white rice and topped with a variety of things like avocado, cucumber, green onions and furikake.  When I saw Trader Joe’s new Sesame-Crusted Hardwood Smoked Ahi Tuna (sold next to the cult favorite Everything But the Bagel Smoked Salmon) I knew I had to buy it!  I immediately turned it into a delicious spicy ahi tuna poke bowl!  Keep reading to see the easy recipe I used.

    I am craving a good Hawaiian poke’ bowl so badly!! My city doesn’t have a Trader Joe’s, but I can probably find a similar option to this at Whole Foods.
