Always loved the Ahi Poke at Kings Fish House.  This recipe is just as good!  I add a bit more sambal oelek (we love the heat).  I use cashews instead of macadamia nuts.  Serve it with a seaweed salad and fried wonton strips.  It's a goto for a "no cook" summer evening.<div>Bon Apetit!</div> item not reviewed by moderator and published

Excellent. I made this today and it came out just like the spicy ahi poke I have enjoyed at the Hana Hotel on Maui. item not reviewed by moderator and published
LOVE tuna poke. Love Maui onions. BUT.....this recipe has an overload of the onions. Could not make this for many friends who cannot tolerate the raw onions. Besides, seeing the little slices with the cubes of tuna does not make for a pretty plating. With the price of the tuna, and its delicate flavor, do not ruin it with the onions. Little slices of green onions would make it pretty and some flavor. NOT overpowering! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've always wondered about raw tuna... isn't it chewy in your mouth? item not reviewed by moderator and published
So only 3 stars for "too many onions" (in your opinion) in which you could have adjusted while making the recipe?  item not reviewed by moderator and published
