Ahi Poke Bowls
What’s the secret to delicious poke? For us, it’s all in the sauce. We take sushi-grade tuna and give it a tasty honey-sesame-soy marinade and then a drizzle of our honey-kissed version of bang-bang sauce. Served with crunchy wonton strips alongside your favorite toppings, this Hawaiian dish is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
3 tablespoons soy sauce

What to do:
1. Wash Up!
2. Make the Poke: Whisk together the garlic, ginger, soy sauce, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, and sesame oil in a medium bowl. Add the tuna and green onions and toss well to combine. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
3. Make the Sauce: Stir together the mayonnaise, remaining 1 tablespoon honey, and chili-garlic sauce. Set aside.

Fry the wontons, in batches, 30 seconds to 1 minute on each side or until browned and crispy. Drain on the paper towels, and sprinkle with salt while still hot.
