it’s national margarita day, gang! who knew? looks like date night will be held at home as i have a fantastic jalapeño margarita recipe that i’ll share with y’all. and what goes with margaritas? since mexican/asian fusion is kind of a big deal these days and we lived in Asia for many years, i thought i’d whip up an easy and healthy dish – Poke Bowl (pronounced POH-keh). it’s a surprisingly easy meal to prepare, and it’s delish! i promise. but first, let’s set the scene.
colorful placemats and napkins are a must for national margarita day. it’s a fiesta in the making and spices things up! guess who’ll be ready for cinco de mayo that will be here before we blink? mexican bubble glasses add the finishing touch.
the first step is sashimi grade tuna cut into bite-size pieces.
whisk together a soy-sesame marinade and add tuna.
there are so many toppings that go with to a Poke Bowl so go ahead and pick your favorites. today, i chose cucumbers, cilantro, broccoli sprouts, scallions, and chopped peanuts. not pictured is chopped avocado. add room temperature rice, any kind of rice, and your meal is complete. our favorite? basmati. recently i discovered a lovely basmati quinoa blend that’s scrumptious! didn’t i say it was easy to celebrate national margarita day?
happy national margarita day, ladies! enjoy.
