2 tablespoons Kikkoman®Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon Kikkoman® Rice Vinegar
1 teaspoon Kikkoman® Sesame oil
1 teaspoon fresh minced ginger
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 lb. sushi grade ahi tuna, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
1 large cucumber
Kikkoman® Wasabi Sauce
Black and white sesame seeds
Fresh thyme leaves

directions

  1. To prepare marinade, stir together soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, ginger, sugar and garlic in a small mixing bowl. Stir in tuna, cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes. Pour into a strainer; drain off and discard excess marinade.
  2. To prepare Tuna Poke Pickups, peel cucumber and cut in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds with a small spoon. Cut each half into 8 pieces, slightly on the diagonal. Top with equal amounts of marinated tuna and a small dollop of wasabi sauce. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and thyme.

Recipe tip:
Cut a small slice off the bottom of each cucumber piece to make them stand up.

THE STORY OF SOY SAUCE

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.
