I was in Hawaii a few years ago, and I remember a Hawaiian Guy telling me Poke Bowls were the local dish. He told me what was in it, and I instantly turned my nose up. I also left Hawaii not having an Acai Bowl either. But, in the last year or so, with Poke Bowls becoming a huge trend, my regret for not eating them (or Acai Bowls) in Hawaii has grown, just as much as my love for Poke Bowls. Depending on where you live, there’s a growing number of Poke Bowl restaurants opening, and cafes including Poke Bowls on their menu; my personal favourite being salmon, with a brown rice base, and all the toppings.
I’m still a bit iffy about eating raw fish at home (I’ll leave that to the professionals) so I made a Poke Bowl with Tinned Tuna – which is a lot cheaper, easier and a more readily available source of protein.
