So I’ve become a recent convert to the whole raw fish thing. My parents are Japanese and I’ve grown up with sushi in my home my whole life, but I never really liked it. It was something about the texture of it. However, I’ve had a few poke bowls lately, and they are the bomb. Totally fresh, delicious, and with chopped up pieces of sashimi so that I don’t really have to deal with the whole texture thing.
But, we haven’t been able to locate a poke bowl place anywhere near our home. So, I decided I’d try to make one. It was unbelievably simple and easy!
- 1 pound of tuna and salmon sashimi (make sure it is Sushi-Grade raw fish – I found mine at a local H-mart)
- 2 TBSP soy sauce
- 3 tsp sesame oil
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp fresh ginger
- 1/4 of an onion, very thinly sliced
- steamed white rice
Directions for sauce:
- mix together the soy sauce, sesame oil, maple syrup, ginger, and onion in a bowl.
- add in the tuna and salmon sashimi
- mix and marinate for 10-20 minutes
Serve mixture over steamed rice. You can add avocado, thinly sliced cucumber, seaweed salad, sesame seeds, and/or edamame on top. Enjoy!
