This shoyu ahi tuna and spicy tuna is on a bed of sushi rice and wrapped with Inari Age. Inari Age is a deep-fried tofu pocket that was made simmer in sweet and savory dashi-based broth. It's vegetarian but if using kombu dashi you can enjoy the inari age vegan too!

To make at home poke, I love to get them from AnnaSea Foods Group which is a family owned business started in Seattle in 2000. You can find them at Uwajimaya, H-Mart, and at Sprouts. If you aren’t local, I’d suggest ordering the Shrimp from City Pier Seafood.
