Stuffed avocados are a keto staple because they are so quick and easy to prepare.
I love poke bowls, it’s probably my number one go-to when it comes to grabbing a quick low-carb meal out when I’m utterly sick of Chipotle. When I’m able to find sashimi grade tuna or salmon at the market I jump at the chance to make it at home as well.
For this keto recipe I thought it would be fun to make a Tuna Poke Stuffed Avocado! Just a few simple ingredients, quality fish, and 5 minutes is all you need to make this light lunch!
Heads up that these sashimi stuffed avocados don’t keep well so you’ll want to eat it immediately, somehow I don’t think that will be an issue.
