Tuna Poke

Yellowfin tuna works fine for this recipe, If you want a richer tartar, try using bigeye tuna which has a higher oil content. Always hand chop your tuna. Cut it into thin strips then dice it coarsely. Don't use a food processor as tuna is too delicate. This recipe has a little kick. For milder poke, use less sriracha.


  • 1 pound tuna, hand chopped

  • 3 tablespoons teriyaki sauce

  • 1 tablespoon tobiko (flying fish roe),black or red.

  • 2 tablespoon green onions, very thinly sliced

  • 2 teaspoons chili oil

  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds

  • 1 teaspoon sriracha hot sauce

  • pinch of salt


  • Place chopped tuna in a bowl, add all ingredients. Gently fold ingredients together until just mixed. I save a little of the tobiko for garnish on top of the tartare when I serve it.

  • This recipes makes about 20 one ounce servings. Enjoy!
