Recipe: Poke Bowls

Alright, I get a lot of questions about my Poke Bowls. So here is a small tutorial for some super simple poke bowls. Now don’t fret, you can fancy this thing up with some crab salad (which I will find and eat at some point in the next few weeks), sea weed salad, tempura flakes, more veggies, different veggies, on and on and on.

But for this little guy here is our ingredient list:

  • Baby Spring Salad Mix
  • Cucumber
  • Basmati Rice
  • Sriracha Mayo
  • Raw Tuna
  • Shrimp

Now I cooked the shrimp in some butter and garlic. I just like the texture of cooked shrimp better than the raw version. Now here’s the deal about the fish. You can splurge, go to Whole Foods and buy some “sushi grade” fish from the meat counter or you can do what I do… buy that bish frozen, defrost in the fridge and call it good.

I like to find good deals on frozen fish. This week’s Tuna was 2 filets for $8. WHICH IS AWESOME! I love a good tuna or salmon. Add some shrimp and you’ll be good to go for the week! Now on to making these little bowls of yum!

The first step is to cook your rice. Now I use a basmati rice in my rice cooker, but if you want to make some minute rice, feel free! It’s your food, make it easy! I love my rice cooker because I can set it up and walk away and about 20 minutes later I have rice! Best investment I ever made was this rice cooker! It’s a game changer.

Next put some salad in a bowl and add some rice. Now you can skip one or the other. Either don’t eat some rice or don’t eat some salad. I like to add some salad to my poke bowls because this girl needs to eat some more veggies, so let’s sneak them in wherever we can.

Next cut up your veggies and fish. Look at all that color.

Mix your fish with a sauce. Now I like a sriracha mayo or a teriyaki. You can literally pick any dressing or sauce you like! Mix it up with the fish to make sure you get all the flavor!

Then just put it all together, add some more sauce maybe some salt and pepper and enjoy! Make sure to keep your extra fish and ingredients in the fridge to avoid giving yourself food poisoning. But also, don’t be afraid to try all the fish! You won’t regret it!
