Bluefin Tuna Poke Bowl

We are so excited with the addition of Red's Best sushi products and want to celebrate the occasion with a Tuna Poke Bowl Recipe. The insight we have into this particular Bluefin Tuna is so deep due to Red's industry leading traceability technology. Capt. Richard Emerson Jr. landed the tuna aboard the Empress out of Orleans, Massachusetts by Rod & Reel. Once landed, Red's bought the fish from Capt. Emerson and filleted it over a nine hour period into saku blocks and other sushi items.

Poke bowls are a great option for both lunch and dinner. They are quick to prepare, can be customized to your liking, and very healthy. For our poke bowls we keep it simple by incorporating premium grade Nishiki Rice, carrots, cucumbers, finely chopped lettuce, avocado, sesame seeds, and scallions. We then place the Bluefin Tuna on top and drizzle a lemon garlic sriracha sauce. Once the rice is boiled, this can all be prepared within 10-15 minutes yielding a quick meal during the week. The best part about poke bowls is that they are so versatile, feel free to substitute salmon, scallops, or black sea bass as they are all wonderful additions. Enjoy!
