This is the largest chunk of ahi that I've ever purchased. Tony's offered it on sale for a very good price, especially for them. I already bought 1/2 LB from the regular grocery store. This is over 2.5 LBS and at least one grade better quality. I couldn't resist.
A sauce is prepared from scratch and corrected for taste as I go.
* 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
* 1 tablespoon sugar
So, sweet/sour right there.
* 2 tablespoons soy sauce (shoyu)
So salty flavor right there
* 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish (this is the exact same thing as wasabi)
So hotness right there
1/4 teaspoon powder ginger
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
So, what the heck, right there.
* water to thin it all out.
The sauce needed more sweetness so,
* 1 teaspoon raspberry preserves is added.
This keeps the apple from oxidizing and turning brown, by turning it brown with soy sauce. Either way, the apple still turns brown.
Steamed rice is spooned on top of the salad and sauce.
These toast rapidly. You must stand there and shake them the whole time.
An individualized form of poke. Whoever puts apple in their poke? I do. When it's all that I have around. What, is a Hawaiian going to come over here and challenge me or something when all poke is individualized? This is very good. If you like raw tuna then you will like this.
