Easy Tuna Steak Poke Bowls

Prep time:  20 mins
Cook time:  15 mins
Total time:  35 mins
  • 1 carrot, spiralized
  • ½ cup red cabbage, chopped
  • 2 large slices grapefruit, cut in half
  • ½ avocado, sliced
  • ½ cup cucumber, chopped
  • ½ cup sprouts
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1 medium-sized tuna steak (can sub with frozen tuna steak though not as good!)
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Sesame seeds for garnish
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • ½-1 tsp habanero sauce (recipe below)
Habanero sauce
  • 5 habanero or scotch bonnet peppers, de-seeded
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  1. Cook brown rice according to package instructions. I personally use a brand called Dainty Rice and their Time-Wise brown rice because it cooks like pasta and is ready in 10-15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, season tuna steak with salt, pepper and sesame seeds, making sure tuna is coated.
  3. Divide vegetables into two large pasta bowls. Add ½ cup of brown rice to each bowl, and set aside.
  4. Heat 1½ tbsp olive oil in medium frying pan over high heat. Once oil is close to smoking, add tuna, cooking for about 30-45 seconds per side.
  5. Remove from heat and let sit for a couple of minutes before cubing and tossing with soy sauce and habanero sauce.
  6. Use additional soy sauce and habanero sauce for the rest of the bowl as well to taste, or add spicy mayo and enjoy!
