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
