Instructions

Step 1

Start by preparing the marinade; mix soy sauce, sesame oil, and minced garlic together. Cut the salmon into small cubes and add them to the mixture. Leave for 10-15 minutes.

Step 2

Cook the rice of choice following the package instructions. If you choose sushi rice, don’t forget to rinse it with water to remove excess starch.

Step 3

In the meantime, cut all the ingredients you will add to your Poke Bowl (except edamame beans); e.g. mango in cubes, avocado sliced, red onion chopped

Step 4

Once the salmon and rice are ready, you can finally arrange your bowl. Start by placing the rice and greens, then all the other ingredients.

Step 5

Serve it with additional soy sauce, wasabi or mayonnaise – I really like mixing mayo with soy sauce!

Notes and variations

  • If you buy fresh salmon, I recommend you freeze it before eating it. This process will kill the potential bacteria. However, make sure to check if it hasn’t been frozen before!
  • If you like raw salmon on its own, you can skip the marinade
  • For a vegan version, replace salmon with tofu and mayonnaise with tahini
