Ahi Poki Tuna

Living close to the beach means I’ve always taken fresh sea food for granted. Whether it’s a piece of halibut, shrimp cocktail, or even sushi, I’ve grown up eating sea food. One popular type of fish seen at a lot of restaurants is ahi. If you enjoy the raw flavor and texture of ahi poke, this recipe is good enough to serve as an appetizer or even a dinner. Ahi isn’t always the cheapest, but when you find a good deal try out this ahi tuna poki dish and let your taste buds enjoy the flavors of the ocean!
