That much wasabi??? =D

Ain't so. It's guacamole. And you'd be surprised at how tuna sashimi and avocados go super well together. 

Made this for my dad's birthday. We decided to celebrate at home this time since my grandpa rarely dines out anymore- much more so at night. For any dinner, even simple weekend dinners, I usually plan our menu just to make sure they all sound and look right together. But for this particular evening, my mom decided to make a surprise and I wouldn't tell anyone what I was making either. Thus, we ended up with a really funny menu which was not coherent at all. There's the traditional heirloom misua, Kare-kare (Filipino oxtail peanut curry stew), super yummy Fried Chicken and this Tuna Poke Sashimi. Not coherent, but whatever, as long as everything's super yummy and we had fun =)

I got inspiration for this tuna poke from my super favorite food site- yumsugar.com, adjusting according to whatever's available in my cupboard. Read on on how to make them.
