I’ve been making my easy Spicy California Shrimp Stacks for years, but when I got my hands on some tuna, I thought I would share a tuna poke version based off my Spicy Tuna Poke Bowls. These tuna stacks are SO delish and perfect for when you’re craving sushi. They’re such a fun and easy dish that will wow your friends! Serve the stacks with some Spicy Garlic Edamame and make it a meal.

I love poke and order it out when I know I can get fresh fish, but also love making it myself when I get my hands on fresh sushi grade tuna. These ahi tuna stacks come together in less than 20 minutes with frozen brown rice from Trader Joe’s (I’m obsessed!) and pre-cubed sushi-grade ahi tuna.  All you have to do is combine the ingredients and assemble. And you don’t need anything fancy for assembly – just a one-cup measuring cup. Two stacks is filling, if you want to serve as a multi course meal you can serve one stack for 4 people.

How to Make an Ahi Tuna Stack

Tuna: Combine the tuna with soy sauce, sesame oil, sriracha, and scallions.
Rice: Stir rice vinegar into warm rice.
Spicy Mayo: Mix mayo and sriracha.
Assemble: Spray a 1-cup measuring cup with oil and then layer cucumber, avocado, tuna, and rice.
Toppings: Turn the cup upside down and remove it from the stack. Sprinkle with furikake, soy sauce, and spicy mayo.

Variations:

  • If you don’t have frozen rice, make your own using use short-grain brown rice.
  • Swap the ahi tuna for crab meat, shrimp, or sushi-grade salmon.
  • If you don’t want to buy  Furikake  (affiliate link), a Japanese condiment made with sesame seeds, seaweed, and spices, you can just use sesame seeds.
  • If you prefer your spicy mayo to be spicier, feel free to add more sriracha.
  • You can also use light mayo if you prefer.
  • Don’t like raw fish, make these Shrimp Stacks instead.
