Poke Bowl

Homemade poke bowls with spicy tuna and ponzu-flavored salmon! BRIGHT, bold, and REFRESHING.

My favorite part about making poke bowls is that there is barely any cooking involved and you can give yourself bigger portions because poke spots give you the smallest portions and charge so much. Just make sure your fish is sashimi grade since it will be consumed raw.

You can build your bowl to include any toppings you’d like. My favorites are avocado, pickled cucumbers, pickled ginger, and imitation crab. Here are some other options so you can customize it:

  • edamame
  • crispy garlic
  • mango
  • wonton crisps
  • cilantro
  • seaweed
  • masago
  • chopped macadamia nuts

Here is how I make my quick pickle cucumbers:

  • 1 Persian cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Just make it at the start of this recipe so it can sit in the pickling juice for at least 30 minutes or more.


1 pound salmon sashimi, chilled and cubed
juice of 1/2 lime
1 tablespoon orange juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 green onion, sliced
3/4 pound tuna sashimi, chilled and cubed very small
2 to 3 tablespoons sriracha
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup mayonnaise
4 tablespoons sriracha
4 cups cooked jasmine rice
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
sesame seeds (optional)


PREPARE PONZU SALMON: Mix salmon with lime juice, orange juice, soy sauce, and sliced green onion in a bowl.
PREPARE SPICY TUNA: Mix tuna, sriracha, sesame oil, and salt in a bowl.
PREPARE RICE: You can use any rice you'd like. Once it is cooked and while it is still hot, add the rice vinegar, sugar, and salt. Mix together well.
MAKE SPICY MAYO: In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise and sriracha. Taste it and if you like it more spicy, add more sriracha.
ASSEMBLE: Add your base which can be rice or even a salad blend. Add the seafood on top along with any toppings you like. Drizzle a generous amount of spicy mayo on top. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top and enjoy!
