For the Bowls

Citrus Ponzu

Creamy Sriracha Sauce


For the Creamy Sriracha Sauce

  • Add mayonnaise, sriracha and lemon juice to a small mixing bowl. Mix to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste, if needed.

For the Citrus Ponzu

  • In a bowl, add the soy sauce, orange juice, lime juice and mirin. Whisk well to combine.

For the Tuna

  • Place the tuna in a medium mixing bowl with the green onions (reserve a little bit of the green onions to sprinkle on top of the bowls at the end).
  • Add some of the ponzu to your taste. You can reserve some to pour over the rest of the ingredients. Add sesame seeds. Mix gently to combine. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour. If you let the fish sit for longer time, the citrus in the ponzu will slowly cook the fish.
  • Pile it up! Put rice into serving bowls and top with your desired toppings. Add extra ponzu if desired and drizzle a bit of toasted sesame oil (optional). Add the chilled tuna. Top with macadamia nuts (optional), and drizzle with the creamy Sriracha sauce.


  • Although fresh tuna is best, frozen tuna can also be used to make this recipe. Freezing will kill any parasites that may be present in the fish (source USDA).
  • If you prefer not to consume raw tuna, you can cut the tuna into steaks and sear the surface before chopping it into smaller chunks.
  • Fresh tuna is best when eaten on the day it is prepared. You can store leftover ahi tuna in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 1 day.
  • Authentic Hawaiian Poke bowls are made with short-grain Japanese sushi rice but any type of rice can be used.
  • Find some helpful information from the USDA regarding selecting and consuming fresh and frozen fish.
