Ahi Poke is one of my absolute favorite dishes to order when I go out to eat. Unfortunately sometimes it can be unhealthy when served with chips that are fried in oil. In addition, many soy sauces used in the sauce contain wheat so I set out to re-create a healthier version of Ahi Poke to eat at home. Here’s what you’ll need to prepare Ahi poke over brown rice:
 -1/2 pound of fresh ahi
 -1 teaspoon sesame oil
 -1 tablespoon gluten free soy sauce (or liquid aminos)
 -1 green onion
 -1 crushed garlic glove
 -1/2 cup cooked brown rice
 -1 avocado
 -Coconut oil spray

Step 1: Cook your brown rice.
Step 2: While the rice is cooking, whisk the crushed garlic, soy sauce, and sesame oil together in a bowl.
Step 2: Chop one green onion into small pieces.
Step 3: Cut the ahi into small cubes with a sharp butcher’s knife. Spray a pan with coconut oil and put all of the ahi cubes in the pan. Cook for 30 seconds on each side. The ahi will be cooked on the outside, but completely rare on the inside. You can omit this step–I cooked the outside since I picked the ahi up in the evening and knew it had been put out in the morning, otherwise I would’ve skipped this.

Once everything is ready, place the brown rice on a plate and flatten the top. Add the avocado pieces, then the ahi. Pour the sauce over the ahi. Lastly, add your green onions.

This is such an easy and quick dinner to make. Plus it’s healthy and much less expensive than restaurant poke. The total cost to make this meal was $11.
