We’re humongous fans of the fresh and delicious ahi-tuna poke bowls! It’s so easy to make and INSANELY gorgeous to look at! My child is a hardcore sashimi fan, so the poke bowl which is a combination of marinated raw tuna with an assortment of healthy vegetables makes a regular appearance during lunch!
Today’s foodie trivia: “Sashimi” is not the same as “sushi.” Sashimi is thinly sliced raw meat – usually fish, served without rice. Sushi however, is NOT raw fish, but the serving of vinegared rice with other ingredients, which may or may not include raw fish.
Anyway… sometimes (not always… rarely happens, but it does) we don’t really want an entire bowl of food to chow on. Which is why these Ahi tuna and Avocado Wonton Crisps make such perfect snacks / light meal!
Marinated Ahi Tuna, avocados, some wonton wrappers… and you’re ready to go! To be honest, we usually end up eating more than a serving of a poke bowl, but whatev… it’s soooooo yummy!
