Homemade Poke Bowls


For the Poke:

  • 1 pound fresh sushi-grade fish (such as tuna or salmon), cubed

  • 2 tablespoons sriracha sauce (optional for spice)

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon honey or maple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

  • Optional toppings: sliced green onions, sesame seeds, seaweed flakes

For the Bowl:

  • 4 cups cooked sushi rice or brown rice

  • 1 cup diced cucumber

  • 1 cup diced mango or pineapple

  • 1/2 cup diced avocado

  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced radishes

  • 1/4 cup sliced jalapeños (optional for spice)

  • 1/4 cup pickled ginger

  • 1/4 cup edamame beans

  • Lime wedges for serving


  1. In a bowl, combine soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, honey or maple syrup, grated ginger, and minced garlic. Whisk well to create the marinade for the poke.

  2. Add the cubed fish to the marinade and gently toss until the fish is well coated. Let it marinate in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.

  3. While the fish is marinating, prepare the rice according to the package instructions. Once cooked, let it cool slightly.

  4. Assemble the bowls by dividing the cooked rice among four bowls.

  5. Top each bowl with a portion of the marinated fish.

  6. Arrange the diced cucumber, mango or pineapple, avocado, radishes, jalapeños (if using), pickled ginger, and edamame beans around the fish.

  7. Sprinkle sliced green onions, sesame seeds, and seaweed flakes over the bowls as desired.

  8. Serve the poke bowls with lime wedges for squeezing fresh lime juice over the toppings.

  9. Toss the ingredients together just before eating, and enjoy!

You can customize your poke bowls by adding or substituting various ingredients. Feel free to include other toppings like shredded carrots, sliced scallions, or different types of sauces like spicy mayo or ponzu. Enjoy your delicious homemade poke bowls!
