I love Poke bowls and often make them when I crave sushi! A few favorite dishes that satisfy my sushi cravings are Shoyu Ahi Poke, California Shrimp Stacks and California Spicy Crab Stuffed Avocados. I’m also really digging this poke bowl with mango and avocado, a guest post by my friend, Heather K Jones, please welcome her!

What is a poke bowl?

Marinated sushi-grade tuna is tossed with veggies, nuts, fruit and brown rice—it’s sort of like a deconstructed tuna sushi roll in a bowl. It’s so easy, so tasty and it’s great for those summer nights when you really don’t want to heat up the kitchen. Enjoy!

Variations:

  • Try this with salmon, albacore or yellowtail.
  • If you don’t like raw fish, try this with cooked shrimp.
