Ingredients for

Watermelon Poke

2 cups watermelon, cubed (seedless or seeds removed) 

3 tablespoons tamari

2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil

¼ teaspoon agave nectar

½  teaspoon rice vinegar

Garnishes: sesame seeds, cilantro, pickled carrots, edible flowers

Instructions for

Watermelon Poke

Place cubed watermelon in a shallow dish and set aside. Add marinade ingredients to a bowl and stir until combined; adjust seasoning to taste. Pour the marinade evenly over the cubed watermelon and gently stir so all of the pieces are coated. Refrigerate and stir every few hours until all cubes have absorbed the flavor, for about 2 to 3 hours (or overnight). Strain excess liquid from the watermelon and garnish with sesame seeds and cilantro before serving.
