Cuisine Poke Bowl
A Hawaiian staple, poke bowls are inherently nutrient-packed. Thanks to superfoods like heart-healthy fish, vegetables, and seaweed, these bowls are as nutritious as they are satisfying. Salmon, the star of our poke bowl, is another great source of healthy fats. Wild-caught salmon offers a generous amount of omega-3 fatty acids, which have been found to reduce risks of heart disease. Simple and satisfying, the poke bowl is also packed with fiber thanks to the brown rice, edamame, and avocado.
And for the finishing touch, a sprinkle of furikake not only adds umami flavor, but also offers various nutrients too. Thanks to the dried seaweed, furikake is a good source of vitamin B12, fatty acids, and an assortment of minerals.
Test Kitchen Tip
Be sure to choose fish labeled as “previously frozen.” This ensures the fish has been frozen to below -4°F, which according to FDA guidelines, is a sufficient temperature to kill parasites.
Combine ponzu, honey, sesame oil, and sesame seeds in a bowl for the sauce; season with salt. Add salmon, toss to coat, cover with plastic wrap, and chill until ready to serve.
Divide rice, salmon (reserve sauce), avocado, edamame, radishes, onion, and ginger among four bowls.
Drizzle reserved sauce over bowls and sprinkle with furikake.
When working with raw salmon, be sure that your knife, cutting board, and hands are clean.
If you’re nervous about eating raw fish, or can’t find a reputable source, sear the fish before eating.
