OMG you guys.

We need to talk about something mind-blowing.

Specifically, these Tuna Poke Stacks.

I mean, my two new favourite loves infused together, tuna poke and sushi. They’re your favourite too? Well you’re just gonna DIE over this recipe!

Wasabi-Ranch Spicy Tuna Poke Stacks

But first off, I should admit that this isn’t the first time I’ve made a sushi stack like this. I know, I’m kinda copying myself right? But I mean, if I gotta make a similar recipe twice, you just know it’s a good idea.

And if that still doesn’t convince you, maybe the fact that these Tuna Poke Stacks are ready in just about 20 minutes should?

Yay for crazy easy weeknight dinners, especially when this time of year is so crazy!

Right now, I’m in the middle of trying to get all my Christmas presents (which reminds me, I have to order my mom’s gift online still!), while trying to wrap up various campaigns and working my little tail off! I

I mean, I have been up working until 10pm some nights just trying to get everything finished in time to hopefully take a little time off during the holidays. It’s funny because I realized the other day that I haven’t really taken any substantial time off (other than the four days around my birthday) in about a year.

HOW CRAZY IS THAT?!

And I’m sure I’m not alone on team workaholic over here. I’ve heard many other of my fellow millennials fail to take enough vacation time. I don’t know if it’s because of our entrepreneurial spirit, or if the job market is just changing and it’s getting harder, or what it is.

But for my sanity, I’m surely going to be getting away from the computer, leaving the phone in the other room, and hopefully taking some day trips and enjoying everything the holidays has to offer.

And in the meantime, it’s these types of delicious and simple dinners that are getting me through the holidays, and enabling me to focus on the important things while enjoying something scrumptious when the day is over!

Wasabi-Ranch Spicy Tuna Poke Stacks

So let’s talk a little bit about the ingredients in these Spicy Tuna Poke Stacks.

We’re talking:

  • Ahi tuna steak
  • Authentic sushi style rice
  • Creamy avocado
  • Spicy sriracha mayo
  • Green onions
  • Sesame seeds
  • And Harvest Snaps!

Wasabi-Ranch Spicy Tuna Poke Stacks

Aka my absolute fave.

And before you try and say to me, look Taylor, this is a SNACK. I shall answer with, exactly.

Your favourite snack, incorporated in a deliciously unexpected way for a remarkably simple, quick and easy weeknight dinner.

There is just so much flavour going on in these Spicy Tuna Poke Stacks that I can’t deal. You really just have to experience them to get what I mean.

This is just like sushi takeout, but better. And not quite as complicated as rolling out and cutting little sushi rolls. I just don’t have time for that.

However, I do recommend you use a sharp knife and use sushi grade tuna when putting together your poke.

My poke recipe is simple, with just four ingredients, and you’re totally going to fall in love. Just diced up tuna steak, chili garlic sauce, soy sauce and the tiniest bit of sesame oil. There are all kinds of poke variations but this is my favourite, and packs a ton of flavour when packed with the dried seaweed (nori, available in the sushi section of your local grocery store) and the wasabi snap peas and spicy mayo.

SO GOOD.

And the sushi rice is also pretty easy to make. Bust out that rice cooker you barely use, or just cook it according to the package directions (again, you should be able to find sushi or sticky rice in the Asian section of your local grocery store). Add in a little rice vinegar, salt and sugar, and you’re ready to rock.

Boom, Wasabi-Ranch Spicy Tuna Poke Stacks on your table in 20.

Now you’ll have more energy to head on out to the mall and brave those holiday shopping crowds. Or do some online shopping. That’s more my style.

    I love spice but my husband is a chicken about it. I would have to keep the wasabi and sriracha on the side so we can each customize our own stack 😉

      Hahaha these aren’t too spicy – but for sure, leave the sriracha on the side for him 😉

    These look AMAZING! I love poke and I bet the Snaps add a wonderful crunch. Move over wonton strips.
