One of my favorite dishes I’ve encountered on my travels is the poké bowl. It’s a traditional Hawaiian dish usually consisting of rice, veggies and seasoned raw fish. You can get it pretty much anywhere if you happen to be in Hawaii (lucky you!). If not, go ahead and make your own. This recipe is packed with some of my favorite ingredients: salmon, mango and avocado. If you thought this triple threat makes great sushi rolls, wait until you taste this kickass bowl.
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 tbsp lime juice
- 1 tbsp sesame seeds
- 1 tbsp white sugar
- ½ tsp ground ginger
- 220 g sushi-grade salmon
- ½ avocado, cubed
- ½ mango, cubed
- ½ cup red cabbage, shredded
- ½ cup cooked edamame
- cooked rice, to serve
- In a medium bowl, mix together soy sauce, sesame oil, lime juice, sesame seeds, sugar and ginger. Stir the marinade until sugar is fully dissolved.
- Cut the salmon into 2 cm cubes.
- Put the fish and marinade in a plastic zip bag (or a food container), close it tightly and give it a good shake until everything is evenly covered. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
- Prepare the cabbage, avocado and edamame.
- Place steamed rice in a bowl, add veggies and fish and serve with sliced chilis and coriander on top. Enjoy!
