Poke Bowl

This very popular Hawaiian dish can be made at home easily. Creamy avocado, crunchy cucumber and tropical mango compliment well with salmon, yellowtail and tuna.

Ingredients for two:

Short grain rice 2 cups

Sushi vinegar* 3 tablespoons

Sushi grade salmon, tuna and/or yellowtail 4 - 8 oz (total)

Soy sauce 2 tablespoons

Ponzu sauce (citrus soy sauce) 1 tablespoon

Lime juice 1 tablespoon

Other suggested toppings:

Avocado 2 tablespoons (cubed)

Mango 2 tablespoons (cubed)

Cucumber 2 tablespoons (cubed)

Jalapeño 1 (sliced)

Shiso (Japanese Basil) 2 leaves (chiffonade)

Nori seaweed 1 tablespoon (cut into strips)

Roasted white sesame 1/2 teaspoon

Wasabi / Yuzu pepper (yuzu kosho) 1/4 teaspoon

  1. Make rice with slightly less water than you normally would. Since you will be adding sushi vinegar (liquid), you would want your rice to be little harder.

  2. Add cooked rice onto a large plate. It is ideal to use a wooden sushi rice bowl (which absorbs moist from the rice) but if you do not have an access to it, simply use a large plate. Add sushi rice vinegar over the rice and mix it gently.

  3. Take a very sharp knife and cube fish.

  4. Places cubed fish into a bowl and add soy sauce, ponzu sauce and lime juice. Keep the bolt covered with a plastic wrap and refrigerate.

  5. Prepare other toppings such as avocado, cucumber and mango.

  6. For assembling a poke bowl, add desired amount of rice in a bowl and add fish and other toppings of your choice.

* If you are making your own sushi vinegar, mix 3 tablespoons of rice vinegar with 2 teaspoons of granulated sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
