Spicy Tuna Poke Salad (Gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, grain-free)

Tuna poke always reminds me of my amazing trips to Hawaii. So, when I can get my hands on quality tuna, I love to recreate it at home. Chunks of fresh tuna are marinated in a spicy mix of coconut aminos, sesame oil and seeds, sriracha, green onions, and wasabi roe (you could also substitute with a bit of wasabi paste, but I Iove the pop and crunch of the roe).

This dish uses just a few ingredients and comes together in minutes. You can prepare it ahead of time and let the flavors meld in the fridge until you are ready to serve.

I served this Spicy Tuna Poke as part of a sashimi platter along with my Spicy Salmon Sashimi Salad, nori sheets (so we could make bite-size handrolls... finger-rolls, lol), seaweed salad, and sashimi slices of salmon, tuna, and escolar.
