What Is A Poke Bowl?

As a mentioned above, I had my first poke bowl in Hawaii and it was amazing. According to the People article, “What Is a Poke Bowl, Anyway? A Chef Breaks Down the Food Trend” Poke, pronounced “POH Keh”, means “to slice or cut” in Hawaiian. Moreover, poke refers to diced chunks of raw, marinated fish such as tuna tossed over rice and topped with vegetables such as avocado and shaved onion, and umami-packed sauces.

Poke bowls are customizable. Generally speaking, poke bowls consist of rice, fish, seasoning, dressing, vegetables and hot sauce, but you can put in as much or little as you need. Give some of the recipes above a try and enjoy.

Are Poke Bowls Healthy?

According to the article “Is Poke Healthy? (7 Steps For Healthy Poke)” from Aspire Fitness Walnut, “Poke is a very healthy dish as it usually contains a large amount of tuna and salmon which are packed with protein and great fats. Poke Bowls are also often easy to customize which means there is more control to add healthier, fresher ingredients to the dish.”
