No-Cook DIY Tuna Poke Bowls

Tuna Poke Bowls are perfect for any sushi lover. It's like a deconstructed sushi bowl that everyone can assemble themselves to their liking.

I’m excited to share something we’ve been having fun with this summer … Tuna Poke Bowls! Pronounced poh-KAY (rhymes with okay), if you’re a sushi lover (like us) this will be right up your alley. No nori or special rolling skills needed, it’s almost like a deconstructed sushi bowl that takes all of 10 minutes to prepare.

Once all the ingredients are chopped and marinated, I just spread everything out in serving bowls and let the family assemble their own. I love DIY dinners like this one (as well as tacos, burrito bowls, etc.) because then everyone can make their own dinner however they’d like, with no complaints! And my family LOVES sushi so this is always a crowd-pleaser at my house … with no pots and pans to scrub at the end—score!

What is Tuna Poke?

Generally speaking, tuna poke would be raw tuna chopped into cubes and marinated. “Poke” means chunks in Hawwaiin, so it could be any type of meat or seafood. It’s usually served over rice and a variety of other toppings.

What is Typically in a Tuna Poke Bowl?

This all depends on your preferences. You can start with rice and/or lettuce, then add your protein of choice (tuna for this recipe), and fill with avocado slices, carrot sticks, radishes, cucumbers, onions, edamame, fruit … really the list can go on and on! I kept it pretty simple in the tuna poke bowl recipe for those who are just getting into poke bowls.

Where Can I Buy Sashimi-Grade Tuna?

I’ve had my best luck finding it at Whole Foods or Fresh Market. You can check your local Farmers’ Market, too.

  1. These look so good and I bet they are filling, too!

    I’m totally new to this – does sashimi-grade means it’s safe to eat without cooking or do you still need to cook with some marinade somehow?

    1. Thanks for adding a “jump to recipe” option. I absolutely love your recipes but somehow hate to read blogs. Even if the blogger is nice and sweet as you are.

      1. We completely understand! Lisa tries to keep her opening paragraphs as short as possible for that reason. Glad you like that little button we added :) – Nicole
