We had the opportunity visit Hawaii last winter and one of the things we love to do is find local places to eat.  Just a few doors down from our AirBNB was this place with a line up of people out the door and down the street everyday.  

We knew that this was a Hawaiian poke bowl that we would seriously have to try!

​What does poke in Hawaiian mean?

The word poke is a Hawaiian word that means to “slice or cut”. It refers to sushi grade fish cut into cubes, marinated and served on top of rice.

I chose the spicy salmon poke bowl with some of my favorite toppings like pickled ginger, cucumber slices, avocado, green onions and sriracha sauce. It was the most delicious poke bowl I’d ever had!

​As soon as we got home from our trip, we set to trying to recreate this iconic poke bowl.  I’m happy to say, many poke bowls later, we’ve come up with a Hawaiian salmon poke recipe that is as close to the original as it gets.

We’ve been so obsessed with poke bowls that we’ve also developed a spicy shrimp bowl that’s been a huge hit too!

Ingredients

I love that this easy recipe only needs a few simple ingredients from our local grocery store!

  • Raw fish – we use fresh caught wild salmon. Fresh sushi grade fish like yellowfin tuna is also a popular option.  Our fresh fish of choice is sockeye salmon. As this is a dish with raw salmon, it’s important to use high-quality salmon.
  • Soy sauce – Japanese soy sauce or coconut aminos can be used as well.
  • Sesame oil – this is a great option for fish!
  • Rice vinegar – in a pinch I use apple cider vinegar or white wine vinegar too.
  • Honey – maple syrup may be substituted.
  • Mayonnaise & sriracha – used to create a spicy mayo sauce.
  • Cooked white rice – sushi rice or garlic rice can be used too. I like to substitute cauliflower rice for a low carb version.
  • Avocado, sliced
  • Carrots, peeled and grated
  • Red cabbage, shredded
  • English cucumber, sliced
  • Red bell pepper, diced
  • Green onions, diced
  • ​Fresh lime juice
  • Sesame seeds, optional
