Ahi Poke Pineapple Bites with Avocado Mousse
These bite-size appetizers feature the best healthy ingredients - ahi, pineapple and avocado - and are both gluten- and dairy-free!
Servings: 6 servings
For the poke:
- 1.5 pounds sushi-grade ahi
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon white sesame seeds
- 1/4 of a sweet onion, diced
- Sambal oelek or sriracha, to taste
All other ingredients:
- 2 ripe avocados
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 pineapple, peeled and cut into wedges
Add all poke ingredients to a large bowl and stir to combine. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Place peeled, ripe avocados, salt and lemon juice in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until no chunks remain. Transfer to a piping bag and set aside.
To assemble the bites, scoop a small spoonful of poke onto each pineapple wedge, then pipe a dollop of avocado mousse on top. [And here is where you would also sprinkle on the macadamia nuts if you’re smart enough to use ‘em.] Serve immediately, before the avocado mousse has a chance to brown.
