Poke is a Hawaiian dish containing cubed raw fish. A protein-packed poke will leave you both satisfied and energized. This 5-minute meal tastes like a splurge; however, with a balance of pantry staples and fresh ingredients, it’s truly just a tasty way to treat yourself! In fact, the secret to building an unforgettable bowl is balance:
Grains: A good poke starts with a solid foundation. For an aromatic option, build your bowl with a base of basmati rice. Of course, you can’t go wrong with the ever-versatile fluffy white rice!
Protein: Make sure you purchase sushi-grade fish from a reputable dealer. Ideally, you should buy your fish right before you prepare your meal. If you can’t get your hands on quality raw fish, you could swap in some cooked shrimp or smoked salmon like in this zesty Smoked Salmon Poke Bowl with Jasmine Rice.
Dressing: When it comes to flavors, don’t be afraid to go bold when using firm fish. Tuna and salmon are common in poke as they pair well with strong dressings. For a similar but more citrusy version of this recipe’s dressing, opt for ponzu as it contains yuzu, soy and rice vinegar.
Toppings: As long as you choose ingredients with varied textures, feel free to pack your poke with plenty of tasty toppings! Take this opportunity to use some of those left-over ingredients you may have in the fridge. From carrots to cucumbers, vegetables can easily add color and crunch to your bowl. For optimal texture, thinly slice — or julienne — those veggies. For more of that satisfying crunch, sprinkle on some nuts or seeds, such as roasted peanuts, or toasted sesame seeds. For a bit of heat, try dried wasabi peas.
