Salmon, Avocado, and Pea Shoot Poke Bowl

Salmon, Avocado, and Pea Shoot Poke Bowl

 

Poke bowls are a delicious Hawaiian import, beloved for their umami flavour and their vibrant healthy ingredients. Though classically containing fresh fish, you can sub in cooked chicken, tofu, or any number of protein alternatives for a tasty take on the original formula. Whatever your combo, you’ll love how easy they are to make. Packed with protein and carbs, poke bowls are a perfect addition to an athlete’s menu. Have fun creating and savoring this delightful Pacific island-inspired poke bowl recipe.
