P and I just got back from a wonderful vacation to the British Virgin Islands. While away we enjoyed fresh fish, homemade guacamole, and pina coladas almost nightly it seemed. As we have transitioned back this week we decided to enjoy some of our vacation favorites together here in Minnesota.
Poke is a traditionally served as an appetizer, made from sushi grade ahi tuna and other fresh ingredients. However, my husband and I enjoy this as a lighter and very healthy dinner option, served with our favorite guacamole and chips (recipe coming soon to the blog). It is an extremely easy recipe and takes about 10 minutes to prepare, which makes it perfect for a week night. I hope that you will enjoy this recipe as much as we do. It has us dreaming of gorgeous, warm summer nights here in MN.
