Here’s What to Know About Poke Bowls!

One of the most delicious and authentic Hawaiian cuisines is the Poke Bowl.

What is a Poke Bowl? “Poke” is the Hawaiian word for “chunk.” This is a reference to the way the dish is served as chunks of fish mixed with rice, vegetables, and other sauces. Here’s what you want to know about Poke Bowls.

The main ingredient is fish, which is typically either tuna, salmon, crab, tofu, or most any other seafood variety. It has a resemblance to sushi, and you may encounter it with crispy onions and other items to compliment the fish component.

Poke bowls go as far back as pre-colonial Hawaii, where fishermen would catch fish, cut them into small chunks, then season them with salt and seaweed. This would eventually become so popular that you would see it done everywhere from gas stations to grocery stores to restaurants.
