Roasted salmon poke - full nutritious and delicious meal in one bowl


Poke is a traditional street food dish in Hawaii that has become a hit outside of it as well.

In Hawaii it is usually based on raw fish cut into cubes and can be served as a first course or main course. A large and colorful bowl that includes rice at the base, raw fish and a variety of vegetables and various sauces.

When it started to become popular around the world it got all sorts of different variations.

I think the concept of this dish is ingenious!

It's basically a whole meal in one bowl.

You can be creative and add in all sorts of things according to your personal taste.

I usually like to replace the rice with glass noodles, sometimes I use quinoa or burgul. You can give it an Asian, Mexican and even Mediterranean twist.

The most comporting bowl there is!

And it's really YUMMY!


So in my Poke bowl I used glass noodles as base, and added flakes of roasted salmon in Asian flavors, stir-fried green beans and broccoli, avocado, cucumber, radish, green and red onions and coriander.

A complete, nutritious and delicious meal!

Feel free to change the ingredients, I often prepare this dish according to what I have in the fridge. And it always turns out nice :)



Ingredients:

[Two servings]

  • 2 salmon fillets

  • 2 cups cooked glass noodles

  • 100 grams of green beans

  • 100 grams of chopped broccoli

  • 1 cucumber

  • 3-4 mini radishes

  • Half medium red onion

  • 2-3 green onion stalks

  • 1 avocado

  • A handful of coriander leaves

Sauce:

  • 3 tablespoons honey

  • 6 tablespoons soy

  • 1 tablespoon Mirin

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 cloves crushed garlic

  • Ground black pepper

  • A quarter teaspoon of sea salt

  • A quarter teaspoon of chilli [you can add more if you like it spicy]

  • Half a lemon


Prep:

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

  • Boil water with a little salt in a pot.

  • Prepare the marinade for the salmon: mix the honey, soy, mirin, sesame oil, olive oil, crushed garlic, a pinch of ground pepper, salt and chilli. Two-thirds will be used as a marinade for salmon and one-third will be used as a sauce for the whole bowl.

  • Place the salmon in a pan and cover it with the marinade [two-thirds of the amount!]

  • After a few minutes put the salmon in the oven for 10-12 minutes.

  • While the salmon in the oven put the bean noodles in the water that has boiled in the pot for 3-4 minutes, the fire does not have to be lit at this point. [Pay attention to the cooking instructions on the package, it may be different - depending on the thickness of the noodles]

  • Transfer the noodles to a bowl with cold water so it won't continue to cook and keep the boiling water in the pot.

  • Cook the green beans and broccoli in boiling water for 3 minutes. Possibly more, I personally like the greens to maintain a bit crunchy.

  • Then saute it on a pan with a little oil, salt and pepper. You can also add crushed garlic.

  • Cut the cucumber, avocado, radishes, purple onion and green onion. And chop the coriander.

  • To the third of the marinade we kept aside, add half a squeezed lemon and a little more salt if necessary.

  • And now it time to assemble the dish.

  • Place the noodles in a bowl and top with the sautéed greens, cucumber, avocado and radish.

  • Cut the salmon into small pieces with your hands or with a fork and add it to the bowl.

  • Sprinkle the red onion, green onion and coriander on top.

  • And above all pour the sauce.


Enjoy! :)
