I moved to Arizona thinking that I would be surrounded by sunshine 365 days a year, but moving back to Hawaii would have been a better idea! Unlimited sunshine, surrounded by the ocean, and more fresh fish that you could possibly imagine!! I created this Ahi Poke Stack as a “grown-up” version of the traditional Ahi Poke salad that is served everywhere you go on the islands…..

There are a million different ways to make Ahi Poke {pronounced poke-ay}, so there really is no way to do it wrong. Everyone has their own version based on their own family’s tastes…and what you can find at the grocery store on the mainland!

Thankfully, you can now find Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Seared Ahi Tuna in the frozen seafood section, typically near the seafood counter, at your local grocery store. If not, substitute any sushi-grade tuna that is available.

Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Seared Ahi Tuna with Garlic-Peppercorn Rub is the first ever sushi quality “thaw and serve” packaged seafood product. It stays frozen during the processing and is never fully defrosted or re-frozen during preparation, so we can guarantee our quality is on par with what you expect from fine chefs who know how to source the best product for their restaurants.

I made my Ahi Poke Stack look like a fancy restaurant meal, but it is super simple to prepare.

How to make Ahi Poke Stacks:

You simply defrost your Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Seared Ahi Tuna and it’s ready to serve. Remove from vacuum pack and place in refrigerator to thaw for approximately 3 hours.

Slice each Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Seared Ahi Tuna into four squares…..

We are going to use a standard, one-cup measuring cup to create our stack…..

Place half of the ahi poke salad mixture into a one cup measuring cup.

Spoon half of the avocado mixture over the poke mixture and spread evenly.

Top mixture with cauliflower rice {or regular rice if using}. Pat the rice down to squish all of the layers together.

Run a thin knife around the edge of the measuring cup and turn Ahi Poke Stack out onto a plate…..

Relive your Hawaiian vacation at home with a Ahi Poke Stack. All of the traditional flavors are there and they are super simple to prepare | cookingwithcurls.com #BBSuperFresh #Seafoodies #ad #Paleo

I was originally going to garnish my cute little Ahi Poke Stack with seaweed, but this is Arizona and seaweed must not be all that popular here, lol. So in honor of my dear friend Kinji, I decided to drizzle them with Sriracha hot chili sauce. I’m sure he would have used half the bottle, but use as much as you would like. 🙂

When I think of Hawaii, I think of fresh fish, fruits and vegetables. Very, very healthy foods that are incredibly delicious. I took it one step further and created the recipe following Paleo guidelines, well if you don’t include the sriracha. Feel free to substitute soy sauce for the coconut aminos, and serve with regular white rice.
