POKE BOWLS

poke bowls are certainly having a moment in southern california. it feels like there is one popping up on every corner. i don’t believe in eating too much tuna but they are certainly fun to indulge in every once in awhile! they are also great to offer to a group as you can set all of the toppings out in bowls and let people assemble as they like. for the tuna, we bought ours at whole foods. when you purchase, make sure it’s sushi grade as you’ll be eating it raw. you can do a lot of different sauces on the tuna, mayo + sriracha for spicy tuna, soy sauce + ginger and soy sauce + rice vinegar + sesame oil. play around with different flavor options and decide what works best for you! – joanie

makes 3-4 servings 

what you’ll need:

• 1 pound ahi tuna (sushi grade)
• 2 cups corn
• 2 cups edamame
• 3 small persian cucumbers sliced
• pickled ginger
• 1 cup white rice
• black sesame seeds
• 2 green onions diced
• 3 teaspoons masago
• 1 avocado thinly sliced

marinade for tuna:

• 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
• 1 teaspoon sesame oil
• 2 teaspoons soy sauce
• 1 teaspoon salt

wash rice in cold water. in a rice cooker, cook the white rice with 1 cup of water. in a medium bowl, mix the rice vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce and salt. dice the tuna into small cubes and add to the marinade.

lay out all your toppings for assembling your poke bowls. fill your bowls with a serving of white rice and begin to add the tuna and toppings. we garnished ours with black sesame seeds and green onions. enjoy!

    I love Fish King in glendale or McCalls in Los Feliz. Whole Foods is generally good too!

    Is it a typo? or is there a food called massage?

    Masago is fish eggs.

    I’m totally into the Poke trend and I love this recipe! Unfortunately, the poke trend hasn’t hit Portland as hard as it has LA. It will be so much fun, and much more affordable to make my own at home.
