The marinade for the tuna poke involves sesame oil and soy sauce – a classic combination of flavors. However, the garnishes add an interesting element, given that carrot slices and yum-yum sauce are not typically included in this dish. Yum yum sauce is a Japanese mayo-based sauce that’s super sweet and creamy and introduces some juiciness to this beloved recipe.
You could say this ahi poke stack recipe is a slight adaptation of the traditional dish with a unique flavor profile that enhances the fresh tuna taste. The mixing and matching of sweet and savory garnishes and different textures will have you running to make more!
And, did we mention tuna is rich in protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and numerous vitamins and minerals? With a total prep time of 10 minutes, there’s no better way to make a nutritious and delicious meal.
