Salmon and Mango Poke Bowl

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]You couldn’t escape the resounding success of the « poke bowl », which in just a few years have become a real wellness recipe. As I am a food addict and, for me, eating should always remain a pleasure, I try to combine healthy cooking and tasting pleasure. I do have to say, the Poke Bowl sure won me over! Just try this salmon and mango poke bowl and you will be convinced for sure!

A dish straight from Hawaii

Now a staple of « healthy » cooking, the poke bowl (traditionally pronounced « Pokai ») originally came from Hawaii and could be translated as « diced fish salad ». A traditional dish made from ingredients grown on the island, it has become a real phenomenon throughout the world; the United States were the first country the dish conquered. But it is not the only one. In Japan, Poke Bowl restaurants are growing like mushrooms; this tasty and fresh exotic dish could almost dethrone traditional sushi, a testimony to its success! It usually consists of diced raw bluefin tuna marinated in soy sauce, slices of avocado, seaweed, cashew nuts or macadamia, sliced onions, pieces of fresh mangoes, all topped with ginger and served on a rice base. Needless to say, it is plated in a bowl (perfect for reducing portions, you’ve been warned)! Finally, it’s pretty to look at; it could almost parade on the catwalks of the hottest recipes! Like the Buddha bowl, the food is arranged next to each other. This technique makes it possible to create a pretty, colourful bowl, as attractive as a bowl can be.

Balance in the bowl

The Poke Bowl isn’t just pretty. Although it takes care of its appearance, it also is nutritionally rich and truly is a gold mine of good nutrients. It represents a wholly balanced intake of protein, carbohydrates and fats. Raw fish and avocado are a source of omega-three and good fat, seaweed and exotic fruits are rich in fibre, vitamins and minerals, and nuts help lower cholesterol and are full of vitamins. Finally, rice provides energy and fish and seaweed are rich in protein.

Convinced yet? I hope so, because now is the time for my homemade recipe. I eat it in winter as well as in summer, and it is infinitely variable. It’s one of my favourite recipes because it is simple, quick, balanced and delicious. You can replace rice with quinoa to take advantage of the virtues of this South American plant, which is rich in protein and micronutrients.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image= »3526″ img_size= »full »][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css= ».vc_custom_1590998968745{border-top-width: 1px !important;border-right-width: 1px !important;border-bottom-width: 1px !important;border-left-width: 1px !important;border-left-color: #eeeeee !important;border-right-color: #eeeeee !important;border-top-color: #eeeeee !important;border-bottom-color: #eeeeee !important;} »][vc_column][vc_column_text css= ».vc_custom_1591000967739{border-bottom-width: 1px !important;padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #f7f7f7 !important;border-bottom-color: #eeeeee !important;} »]

    Hello, first of all, I wanted to congratulate you on your amazing blog! You did a great job!
    I also wanted to ask you for advice. My child doesn’t like fresh salmon, is it possible to replace it with smoked salmon while keeping the recipe?
    Thank you

      Hello Briana! Thanks for all for your lovely message! 😉 Regarding salmon, it’s better to replace with tuna or chicken if they prefer! Avoid smoked salmon because it’s not really appropriate for this kind of recipe. Have a great day!
