Poké (pronounced ‘poh-kay’) is the Hawaiian version of ceviche or sashimi and means “to slice” in Hawaiian, typically chopped raw tuna (ahi poké) marinated in sesame oil and soy sauce. We’re seeing a trend for tuna poké served Japanese-style, with rice, nori and avocado as a healthy main. Use sashimi-grade tuna – a good fishmonger should be able to get it.



  • sushi rice 150g
  • rice wine vinegar 2 tsp
  • sesame oil 1 tsp
  • mirin 1 tsp 
  • soy sauce 2 tsp
  • lime ½, juiced
  • toasted black and white sesame seeds 1 tsp, plus more to serve
  • sashimi-grade tuna 200g, cut into 2cm cubes
  • ridged cucumber ¼, finely sliced
  • avocado 1/4, stoned and cubed
  • spring onions 2, finely sliced
  • nori 1 sheet, snipped into shards
  • coriander leaves to serve


  • Step 1

    Cook the sushi rice following the packet instructions. Tip onto a plate, sprinkle with the rice vinegar, and leave to cool.

  • Step 2

    Whisk the sesame oil, mirin, soy sauce, lime juice and sesame seeds in a large bowl. Add the tuna and toss in the dressing then gently fold in the cucumber and avocado. Divide the rice between two bowls and top with the tuna mix. Scatter over the spring onion, more sesame seeds, nori, coriander and any dressing left in the bowl.
