For the Salmon:

  • 1 lb fresh salmon, sushi-grade, cubed
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced

For the Poke Bowl Base:

  • 2 cups cooked sushi rice or brown rice
  • 1 cup green beans, blanched and chopped
  • 1 cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 radish, thinly sliced (optional)
  • Nori seaweed strips, for garnish
  • Sesame seeds and chopped green onions, for garnish


Prepare the Salmon: 

In a bowl, combine soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, honey, grated ginger, sesame seeds, and sliced green onions. Mix well to create the marinade.

Add the cubed salmon to the marinade, gently tossing to coat.

Let it marinate in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes.

Cook the Rice: 

Prepare sushi rice or brown rice according to the package instructions. Once cooked, let it cool slightly before assembling the poke bowl.

Blanch Green Beans: 

Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the green beans and cook for 2-3 minutes until they are bright green and slightly tender.

Immediately transfer them to an ice bath to stop the cooking process.

Once cooled, chop the green beans into bite-sized pieces.

Assemble the Poke Bowl: 

In serving bowls, arrange a layer of cooked rice as the base. Top with marinated salmon, blanched green beans, cucumber slices, avocado slices, and radish slices if using.

Garnish and Serve: 

Garnish the poke bowl with nori seaweed strips, sesame seeds, and chopped green onions for an extra pop of flavor and visual appeal.

Optional Additions:

  • Drizzle with extra soy sauce, sesame oil, or a squeeze of fresh lime for added flavor.
  • Top with a dollop of spicy mayo or sriracha if you like a bit of heat.
