Low Carb Tuna & Avocado Poke


Poke joints are popping up all over America these days, but it’ll never taste better than homemade, especially with the freshest tuna that your fishmonger can recommend. Skip the rice and add a luscious portion of avocado, not exactly traditional but a superb match for the salty, tangy, spicy seasonings. Lime, raw onion and scallion offer deep flavor without driving up the carb count. Poke is a remarkably flexible dish and can be easily adjusted by omitting or adding ingredients as you wish.
