You may be asking yourself, "What the heck is a Poke Bowl?" right about now. I don't blame you, I wondered the same thing. So, I went to Google for an answer. It's actually of Hawaiian origin and pronounced Pok-eh. It is a raw salad served as an appetizer in Hawaiian cuisine. Pokē is the Hawaiian verb for "section" or "to slice or cut". And now we know! I served it as an entree over a quinoa and brown rice mixture, instead of as the traditional appetizer, and it was ah-maz-ing!
Well, I thought it was amazing, anyway. J...not so much a fan of the raw fish. I'll spare you the details of his reaction when I had him taste it. So, I threw his portion in a skillet and cooked it through for him. He liked it that way. Sad, I know. But, he will eat some sushi with me, so I can't complain too much. I will say that I didn't love it as much the next day as leftovers...better to eat it all while fresh for the best flavor. Which was amazing. Did I mention that already? So, for those of you who aren't afraid of raw salmon, you need to try this. Stat. For reals.
