Salmon Poke Bowl
If you’re not quite sure what a Poke Bowl is, at its simplest definition it’s diced raw fish. Poke means to slice or cut, so that’s why almost all poke bowl recipes you see call for diced fish. A lot of times, poke is served simply as an appetiser with just the fish itself, but here I’ve turned it into an entire meal with the addition of quinoa and vegetables. Normally using raw cubed fish, I’m using salmon slices as that’s what I had in the fridge.
