kikkoman products used:


For the Poke
1½ pounds raw sashimi-grade tuna, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 scallions, thinly sliced
¼ cup Kikkoman® Teriyaki Takumi, Original and more for serving
1 cucumber, thinly shaved into ribbons
Fresh herbs, scallions and/or microgreens
1 lime, cut into wedges

For the Pickled Root Veggies
½ cup Kikkoman® Rice Vinegar
1 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 cup thinly shaved (using a veggie peeler) root veggie ribbons, such as carrots, beets and radishes

For the Rice
2 cups of short grain rice
2 cups of water
¼ cup Kikkoman® Rice Vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Combine vinegar, sugar, and salt in a saucepan filled with water over medium heat and bring to a boil. Drop in the veggie ribbons, simmer for 1 minute, until the ribbons are tender and malleable, then shut off the heat. When cool enough to handle, fish out a ribbon and let the excess liquid drip off. Carefully roll veggie ribbons into little roses and place on paper towels to drain.
  2. Place rice in a fine mesh strainer and rinse under cold running water for a few minutes until water runs clear. Transfer rinsed rice and water to a saucepot with a tight-fitting lid. Bring to a boil over high heat and immediately cover and turn heat to lowest setting. Cook for 15 minutes, remove from heat and let stand, covered, 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine vinegar, sugar, and salt in a small saucepan over low heat and stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour vinegar mix over rice and gently fold with a wooden spoon or spatula to mix in evenly. Set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine the tuna, scallions and Kikkoman® Teriyaki Takumi, Original and toss to coat. Taste and adjust with more sauce as desired. To assemble, divide the rice between bowls, top with the tuna poke, cucumber and root veggie ribbons, and fresh herbs and/or microgreens. Serve with lime wedges and additional Kikkoman® Teriyaki Takumi, Original  for dipping.

Even people who love soy sauce and use it all the time are often surprised to learn what it is and how it’s made. We make ours from just four simple ingredients—water, soybeans, wheat, and salt. Those ingredients are transformed through a traditional brewing process—much like making wine or beer—that has remained unchanged for centuries.
