Salmon and edamame poke bowl

15 minutes to prepare Serves 4



Aloha, poke

It’s only the end of January, and I am already fed up with winter.
So today, we’re defying the frigid temperatures, and we’re doing it Island style.

Poke (pronounced poke-ay) is a popular appetizer commonly seen at Hawaiian parties.
It is fresh, flavorful, and even better than my favorite sashimi, as it gives me all the macros I need: proteins, fat, carbos. Everything is there!

(I know I still need to work on my presentation skills... but the flavour is already amazing, trust me!)

Also, it couldn’t be easier: almost no cooking necessary.
Yeah, raw fish may be a stretch for some. But for those who enjoy it, it honestly doesn’t get much better than this.
Otherwise - as I did for Nina - you can experiment cooked versions, too, which include roasted turkey instead of salmon tartare.

Aloha. We’re dishing on Poke today!!

Here's what you will need for the 4-serving recipe:

360 g Basmati rice 
1 ripe avocado
20 yellow cherry tomatoes
200 g salmon tartare
250 g frozen edamame
rice vinegar
wasabi paste
EVO oil
Soy sauce

  1. Marinate the salmon tartare in soy sauce mixed with wasabi paste, according to taste, for at least 15 minutes
  2. Meanwhile, place the rice in a colander and rinse it under running water, until the water comes out transparent
  3. Pour 400 ml of water into the saucepan, together with the rice and some salt, and bring to a boil. Then, cover with a lid and cook over low heat for 10 minutes. Finally, let it sit for 5 minutes
  4. Meanwhile, boil edamame in salted boiling water for 5 minutes and drain it. Keep aside
  5. Wash and cut tomatoes into halves. Remove the seeds and keep aside
  6. Peel and cut the avocado into thin slices. Keep aside
  7. Pour 2 tablespoons of rice vinegar in the boiled rice and mix well with a spoon
  8. We are ready to prepare the poke bowls: place a layer of boiled rice on the bottom. Then, arrange some salmon tartare, edamame, yellow tomatoes and avocado on top. Season with EVO oil and some more soy sauce and enjoy!
