I never would have thought in a million years that I would fall in love with raw fish. That is what is happening with this Poke Bowl Recipe. I am addicted!
Poke shops have been popping up all over my area and I am not mad about it. These little shops are perfect for trying new poke any way you like. But sometimes, you want to make your own and I am here for you!
I wanted my poke bowl recipe to use ingredients that are easy to find and most you probably already have in your pantry!
HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN AHI POKE BOWL
The most important part of the bowl is the protein. I used Ahi tuna, but you could use salmon. I used 1 pound of tuna steaks that I cut into ½ in cubes.
The vegetables I used were thinly sliced cucumber and onion. I used ¼ of a sweet onion and ¼ of an English cucumber. You could also add shredded carrots, thinly sliced radish, or shredded red cabbage.
Now the sauce is what makes the poke delicious! I used soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, grated ginger, sesame oil, and Sriracha. A more traditional heat source would be sambal oelek, but who has heard of that? Not me!
Once we get all of that goodness stirred up, we can serve it with cauliflower rice to keep it low carb, or you could go the traditional route and use white rice or noodles.
AHI POKE BOWL TOPPINGS
I simply topped my poke bowls with black sesame seeds and sliced green onion. Some other topping options are avocado, macadamia nuts, pineapple, mango, pickled ginger, seaweed salad, fish eggs, and furikake.
