Low Carb Ahi Poke Bowls. This is another way to make Ahi Tuna Tartare but it’s a little faster and maybe a bit more traditional. I have changed the sauce just because it is fun to have these wonderful low carb ahi poke bowls with different flavors but either way you are going to love it.
I was in the grocery store yesterday and as always, ahi tuna was expensive. They also had plain ahi skewers for, are you ready for this, $12.00 per pound less than the steaks. I don’t know about you but in my book that is a lot of money. I asked what the deal was and was told the skewered meat comes in frozen and I am here to tell you that there in no difference in texture or taste between the two so I bought it skewered and cut it the same way I would cut a whole ahi steak and you can do the same. Not to plug Safeway but they also have one lb. packages of frozen ahi tuna and it was…drum roll please…$6.99. So if you divide that by 4 people it come to a scant $1.75 per person. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t eat well on keto because this is a perfect example of how you can. There is scant prep work and these keto low-carb ahi tuna bowls can be on the table in about 45 minutes. I have suggested and shown Keto Pickled Persian Cucumbers as one of the bowl accompaniments because they are so good but these bowls are a completely customizable dish and to be made the way you want them.
