Are the Bowls Healthy?

The bowls are made with fresh ingredients and served with rice and vegetables. This is a very light and healthy dish. You can even make it into a salad and load it up with greens.

Tuna is low in fat and doesn’t have any carbs. It’s also high in protein.

Why is it Called a Poke Bowl

Poke is pronounced “poke-ay” and it means to slice or cut in Hawaiian. Where did the dish originate? It originates from the Pacific coast in Hawaii. The bowl is comprised of marinated fish, typically ahi tun or yellow fin tuna. The fish is typically cubed.

From there the dish is served with sticky rice, You can read more about What Poke Bowls are here.

What Type of Tuna to Use

I use ahi tuna and I grab here from Crowd Cow. I like to get it here because it’s wild-caught and you can purchase it in the cube form, ready for bowls. It’s super convenient.

You can use any kind of fish you want.

How to Make a Poke Bowl

Exact measurements and detailed instructions can be found in the recipe card below.

  1. Combine tuna, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and sesame oil in a medium bowl. Stir. Allow the tuna to marinate, while you prep the remaining ingredients.
  2. Load up your bowl with the rice first and then the tuna and the other toppings.

How to Make the Rice

You can use a rice cooker or for brown rice, check out my Instant Pot Brown Rice recipe.

For Instant Pot white rice, use 1 1/2 cups long grain white rice and 1 3/4 cups of water.

Rinse the rice until the water from the rice runs clear. Add the rice and water to the pot. Seal the pot and cook for 3 minutes on Manual > High-Pressure Cooking.

Is the Tuna Served Raw?

Yes, the tuna is served marinated and raw. Raw tuna is generally safe to eat when properly handled and frozen to eliminate parasites. You can read more about Is Raw Tuna Safe To Eat here.

What Type of Sauce or Dressing to Use

I love to serve with a spicy mayo. You can make it on your own by combining Sriracha and mayo to fit your taste. You can also check out my Chipotle Mayo recipe. It also pairs well.

How to Make it Spicy

I love to add the spicy mayo for extra kick. You can also sprinkle cayenne pepper over the tuna or try using a spicy sesame oil to marinate the fish.

Can You Eat it For Leftovers/How Long to Store it in the Fridge

You can store leftovers in the fridge for one day. After that, the tuna will start to turn slimy. In general, if you purchase tuna to make the bowls, I would plan to eat the tuna quickly.

Tuna will turn brown whether fresh or frozen. I’ve found the best way to keep the bright pink color is to eat it right away.

I love this recipe! So easy, so fresh, so good for a hot day (for those of us that eat foods based on season 🤣). I love the veggie substitution segment, makes it easy to use what you have in a delicious way. It can be done with ahí tuna, sushi grade salmon, honestly, I did it with roasted beets for some vegetarian friends. Delicious. 10/10!
