Bella Vita Amazing Tuna Poke


3/4 pound sashimi grade tuna steak, diced

1/2 cup diced cucumber

1 avocados – peeled, pitted and diced

1/4 cup chopped green onion

1 tablespoon fresh ginger

1 1/2 teaspoons red pepper flakes

1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice

1/4 cup soy sauce

2 teaspoons sesame oil


In a medium bowl, combine the tuna, cucumber, avocado, ginger, green onion, red pepper flakes and sesame seeds. Pour in the lemon juice, sesame oil and soy sauce.  Stir carefully to blend, but don’t mash the avocado. Place this bowl into a larger bowl that has been filled with ice. Chill in the refrigerator for 15 minutes, but no longer – the freshness of the fish will be lost.
