A classic Hawaiian dish remade Perfect Keto style with grain free coconut aminos, refreshing grapefruit and fat packed pili nuts.
So many people miss the cool citrus flavor from their diet when the go keto, but you don’t have to deprive yourself. When you are making this dish, the quality relies heavily on the freshness of the fish you use. Make sure your fish is a high-quality grade, doesn’t smell fishy, and you eat it very soon after you purchase it. We are all about quality here at Perfect Keto. If you need a guide for how to source the best seafood I’ve gotcha covered in my Source Matters Series: How to Buy Healthy Seafood.
It’s incredibly important to incorporate fish into your quality ketogenic diet. Fish are chock full of omega-3 fatty acids which have too many benefits to get into here but trust that getting your fish will help the performance of your brain and digestive system, which leads directly to better mood, lower inflammation and cognitive functioning.
Side note – it’s pronounced “POH-keh” – but I’m sure you already knew that! 🙂

How much tuna do you include? Not sure how to understand 8 filets
Great point Baron! 8 filets would blow our our protein quota for several days haha. That was a mistake, it should say 8oz of tuna, and is updated now. 🙂
Can you break down the carb count for me? 10 carbs per serving seems a lot. Thanks!
Hi Heather, 2 serving size has a total of 10 carbs.
I loved this recipe!!!! My husband and I enjoyed immensely. I thought it would be difficult and time consuming to dice the tuna, but I was wrong. This did not take too much time to prepare.
Thank you for sharing!
Where do you buy your fresh tuna and prep it for use? I’m nervous about parasites living in a small town. Can you use frozen tuna after it has been defrosted?
Hi Marsha, You can buy fresh tuna on your local fish market or order in a fish farm. You might want to check out this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hINuY2B3RjI to see what to choose and where else you can buy.
