Poke is extremely popular right now, and if you try this recipe, you’ll see why. It’s full of craveable flavors like sesame oil and soy, the daikon gives it a nice crunch, and it’s all built on top of healthy lean tuna. Most important: It’s ready in less than ten minutes, and it’s essentially a perfect lunch.

Tuna Poke With Daikon and Peanuts
Makes: 4 servings

1/3 cup peanuts, chopped
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 to 1-1/2 pounds fresh tuna, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
1/2 small daikon radish
5 scallions
1/2 lemon
1/4 cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil
Sriracha (optional)
Cilantro (optional)

1. Put a small skillet over medium-high heat. Put the peanuts and sesame seeds in the skillet. Cook, shaking the pan occasionally until lightly toasted and fragrant.

2. Put the cut tuna in a large bowl. Peel and chop the daikon; add it to the bowl. Trim and chop the scallions; add them to the large bowl.

3. Squeeze the lemon juice into a small bowl and stir the mayonnaise, soy sauce, sesame oil, and sriracha to taste.

4. Pour the dressing over the tuna and sprinkle with the toasted peanuts and sesame seeds. Toss to combine, taste and adjust the seasoning, and serve. Stir in 1/4 cup chopped cilantro, if desired.
