Guys, I seriously love poke. I’ve been to Hawaii a bunch of times and it’s always my meal of choice when I’m there. Along with some solid Mai Tais, of course 😉 You can get some really great poke on the west coast too, and I’m sure there’s good poke to be had around the country. For those of you unfamiliar with it, poke is raw, sushi grade fish cut up into bite sized pieces and usually marinated in some kind of a sauce. My favorite is some version of spicy ahi tuna, but I don’t discriminate.
When I lived in San Francisco, I had the most amazing poke bowl for lunch one day and I knew I had to try to recreate it at some point. It had 3 meats – ahi tuna, salmon, and crab. The crab isn’t a traditional poke bowl add-in, but Dungeness crab is a staple in northern California. Not that I was complaining.
Anywho, I did my take on a poke bowl with this recipe. It’s delicious and I promise there’s some rice under there! I topped it all off with a little bit of flying fish roe because I love that stuff and was in a #TreatYoself mood. Enjoy!
