Instructions

serves 12

Gently toss all ingredients in a non-reactive bowl, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow tuna to marinate and flavors to develop.

To serve as an hors d’oeuvres, top an individual taro chip with poke and finish with Fleur de Sel or Alea salt. To plate as a first course, spoon poke over sushi rice and pair with a crisp salad of Japanese cucumber, frisée lettuce and citrus vinaigrette.
