Stuffed avocados are a keto staple because they are so quick and easy to prepare.

I love poke bowls, it’s probably my number one go-to when it comes to grabbing a quick low-carb meal out when I’m utterly sick of Chipotle. When I’m able to find sashimi grade tuna or salmon at the market I jump at the chance to make it at home as well.

For this keto recipe I thought it would be fun to make a Tuna Poke Stuffed Avocado! Just a few simple ingredients, quality fish, and 5 minutes is all you need to make this light lunch!

Heads up that these sashimi stuffed avocados don’t keep well so you’ll want to eat it immediately, somehow I don’t think that will be an issue.

Can I use smoked salmon? I don't know if I can find sashimi grade fish where I live. That looks so good!

Reply

That will work for a stuffed avocado but not so much for the poke flavour.  Smoked salmon has a strong flavour very different from poke. You may want to try cooked tuna or cooked (unsmoked) salmon instead 😊

Hi, do I miss the chili paste in the ingredients?

Reply

You are right, it was omitted from the list! It's an optional ingredient that can be added for extra heat. You can also use sugar-free chili sauce or even freshly chopped chilies.
