NOW CHECK OUR TIPS FOR SUBSTITUTION AND SERVING IDEAS :)
*If you do not like Raw fish, you may substitute with tofu, imitation crab meat, cooked shrimp, even cucumber is great to use.
*Ask your market butcher to give you the freshest cut of raw fish when purchasing your Ahi. It shouldn't smell dead...it shoud smell like the sea
*It's great for entertaining. Serve in cocktail glasses on a bed of lettuce wit a toothpick for a simple, beautiful presented appetizer.
*Always make sure your fish is fresh.

Great recipe but I'm not sure I can bring myself to each raw fish. Hawaiian style Ahi Poke may be a good recipe for my hubby though! 5*
