Tuna Poke

I actually have dreams about this tuna. The poke trend has barely made it's way upstate, and I find myself hunting down tuna bowls everywhere I go. As a person formerly afraid of raw fish, I'm probably dangerously close to the line at which one should worry about their mercury in-take, but let's talk about some benefits. It's a lean protein packed with things I don't understand like omega-3 fatty acids, it's so low in fat, rich in minerals and vitamins, and most importantly, it literally tastes like butter. If you're #blessed enough to have a Wegmans, they always have this available in the sushi department, and this recipe is very adaptable, so add things like pickled ginger, radishes, or a peanut dressing. And definitely get some Chinese noodles for snacking.
