Avocado Ahi Poke Recipe

This is one of those recipes!

Ahi Avocado Poke Baskets

On Wednesday morning I ventured up to Del Mar to the grand opening party for the new Whole Foods.  The party consisted of goodie bags, delicious samples and an incredible Ahi Tuna special!

I purchased 3.4 lbs of Ahi because:

  1. I can’t pass up a good deal.
  2. I can’t pass up a good deal on fresh sushi-grade ahi tuna.
  3. Everyone needs a little more ahi in their life!

I went home with my giant cut of fish and then began my menu planning for the next couple of days. I’m not going to lie to y’all, I had a nightmare last night that all of the ahi was gone.  Yes, my ahi addiction is now out of control!

These fillo baskets were the first dish I made with the delicious fish.

Avocado Tuna Sushi Baskets

The original idea for this recipe came from Tuna Fillo Baskets that we served at a sushi restaurant I worked at in college.

I combined their recipe with my recipe for Mango Avocado Fillo Baskets and the Ahi Poke Fillo Baskets were born!

Ahi Sushi Fillo Baskets

Poke is Hawaiian for “to slice or cut” and the dish is just that, raw sliced up marinated ahi with added ingredients such as avocado, chili peppers, onions or hot sauce.

The dish is now very popular served as an appetizer with soy sauce and wasabi, so it looks like I’m right on trend!
