Poké bowls, originating from Hawaii traditionally feature a fish salad made with tuna, soy sauce, sea salt, green onions, maui onions and limu. It’s also just served over white rice without any fancy salad stuff (I believe that’s what Western culture did to the humble Poké bowl). The best thing about these bowls is that really, you can do it with any meat you like. Technically speaking, it’s not a Poké bowl, but because all the cool kids are doing it, I thought I would get in on the action too.
This is a perfect fiesta dish. It’s an explosion of Mexican flavours and textures: creamy guacamole meets spicy beans and crispy potatoes. Yum!
