As you all know, I love Costco for stocking up on items I use all the time, like ground turkey, sausages, acai smoothie packets, and even dog biscuits. It wasn’t until a few weeks ago, that I knew Costco sold their own ahi poke by the half pound. Bill and I were minding our own business, perusing the beer selection when we passed by the seafood station and saw four different poke combinations. At only $15 a pound, we figured we couldn’t go wrong trying half a pound of the wasabi ahi poke. We couldn’t have been more right! I never thought a Costco purchase would influence a copycat recipe, but I was counting down the days until I found the perfect batch of sushi grade ahi to repeat this delicious combination.
1 lb Sashimi Grade Ahi Tuna
1 whole Shallot, Sliced
½ cups Chopped Green Onion
3 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
1 teaspoon Seasame Oil
1 teaspoon Chili Garlic Paste
1 teaspoon Wasabi, optional
1 Tablespoon Sesame Seeds
Pat the ahi dry, then neatly cut it into small 1/2-inch cubes. Place in a bowl.
Add the shallots, green onion, soy sauce, sesame oil, chili garlic sauce, wasabi and sesame seeds.
Toss to combine. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate.
