Have you tried these bowls of extreme deliciousness? I’m talking about these yummy Poke Bowls from Hawaii!
Nooo, not THAT Poke Ball… Poke Bowls! (It’s pronounced “poh-kay”… like “okay”)
Poke means “to cut” in Hawaiian, and the dish consists of cubed raw fish marinated in soy sauce and sesame oil.
The first time I tried it was at a restaurant and it was sooo yummy and looked super simple to put together, I just HAD TO make it at home! These beauties can be served as an appetizer, but you can also enjoy them as full meals with a variety of your favorite toppings.
My toppings here: avocado, red radish, corn, nori (dried seaweed), edamame, and carrots on top of quinoa… isn’t it beautiful? It tastes even more delicious than it looks!
