Serve as an entree dish with steamed rice or as a salad over seaweed or shredded lettuce. Recommend using sushi grade #1 ahi or yellowtail tuna. Poki doesn't keep well, so make only as much as you're sure to eat in one sitting. If served as an appetizer, place bowl on a bed of ice to prevent tuna from graying.
