KARE in the Kitchen: Tuna Poke with Coastal Seafoods

Preparing raw fish at home doesn't have to be intimidating. If you are a fan of poke, making it at home is super easy to do and can save you money.

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn — If you're like me and love to eat sushi but hate spending a ton of money of rolls and bowls, keep reading!

I was always intimidated by preparing raw fish at home. How do I know if it's sushi grade or that I won't poison my entire family by consuming something like raw tuna or salmon? So, I went to my friends at Coastal Seafoods, who just opened up a brand new storefront across the street from their old location.

Keane Amdahl, who teaches cooking classes at Coastal Seafoods, not only answered all of my raw fish questions, he decided to teach me how to make easy tuna poke at home.
