This is a great summer lunch or dinner. It’s healthy, quick, easy to make, and tastes delicious! It’s a great way to get in your servings of Hawaiian fish, which is an important part of a healthy diet. And it’s even better when you can use fresh-caught fish from the ocean! This recipe is inspired by the traditional Hawaiian food called poke. Poke is a raw fish salad that’s seasoned with soy sauce, sesame oil, seaweed, and other flavorful ingredients. It’s usually served over rice or noodles. But this version uses fresh fish instead of cooked meat. The quality of the fish used in making their dishes is another important thing to consider


  • 1 lb of fish
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped shallot, garlic, and ginger (all minced)
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • Juice from half a lime (about 1 Tbsp) * Salt & pepper to taste. Add more if you’d like it extra salty! ** I used dashi broth instead because I didn’t have any soy sauce on hand at the time but if you’re using regular saltwater fish stock then this recipe would still work fine with either type of broth.
  • Shredded carrots, cucumber slices, and sliced avocado make up this poke bowl’s toppings; edamame beans add color contrast as well as protein! Sprouts or cilantro may be added at your discretion depending on what you have available in your fridge! Make sure these ingredients are cut into small pieces so they don’t get mushy when cooked together later on down below 🙂

500g white fish, cut into 2cm pieces

  • Use a firm white fish, like snapper or barramundi.
  • Cut the fish into 2cm pieces.
  • Don’t cut the fish into too large chunks.
  • Don’t use too much sauce!

1/2 tsp sesame oil

Sesame oil is a great addition to this dish. It’s made from toasted sesame seeds, which contain antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties, and more potassium than bananas.

It’s also rich in omega-3 fatty acids—which have been linked to lower cholesterol levels and reduced risk of heart disease—and it contains vitamin E (which supports skin health).

1 small shallot, finely chopped

1 small shallot, finely chopped

Shallots are small, round, and brown. They’re a staple in Asian cuisines and are often used in pickling or marinades. In the Hawaiian fish poke bowl recipe, they add sweetness to the dish without being overpowering.

2 garlic cloves, crushed

Garlic is a great source of antioxidants, which can help fight infection and lower your cholesterol. It’s also been shown to lower blood pressure and the risk of developing cancer and heart disease.

Garlic has been used in Hawaiian fish poke bowls for centuries—and not just because Hawaiians think it tastes good! Garlic contains allicin, an antioxidant that may help fight infection by reducing inflammation in the body. It also supports healthy blood pressure levels; research shows that eating two cloves of raw garlic daily lowers systolic (the top number) readings by about 10 points over six months compared with those who didn’t eat any garlic at all

2 tsp grated ginger

Ginger is a root, which means it has a stem. It’s also a tropical plant and perennial (meaning it lives for more than one year). You can use ginger in several ways: as an herb or spice, as part of your cooking diet, and even as medicine! Ginger contains antioxidants that help protect against heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.

Ginger root is used to flavor fish poke bowls because it gives the dish an extra kick without adding too much heat to your mouth—making this recipe perfect for those who don’t like spicy food!

2 tsp soy sauce

  • Mix the soy sauce, sugar, and salt in a small bowl.

Juice and zest of 1 lime

In a small bowl, add the lime zest, juice, and sesame oil. Use a fork to scrape the flesh from the lime before adding it to your bowl.

Salt & pepper

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the rice and water. Stir to mix well and let sit for 20 minutes.
  • While the rice is soaking, heat two tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the shrimp then stir-fry until cooked through (about 3-4 minutes). Remove from pan and set aside on paper towels; reserve any juices left in the pan for garnish later if desired!

1 carrot, julienned

You can also use cucumber, avocado, or edamame beans.

Sprouts or coriander leaves are an option as well.

1/2 cucumber, sliced

You can use any vegetable you like, and the fish you choose to make your fresh poke bowls will depend on what seasonally available ingredients are in your area. For example, I like to use halibut when it’s available during the winter months because it’s very meaty and has great flavor. If you’re not into trying new things or looking for something new to try out there are many other options including:

  • Spicy tuna
  • Salmon
  • Yellowtail (if available)

1 avocado, diced

The avocado is a great source of healthy fats and vitamin E, which helps to protect against heart disease. It’s also rich in potassium, an important mineral that regulates blood pressure.

Avocado is not just good for you—it’s delicious too!

Edamame beans

Edamame beans are a good source of protein and fiber, which can help you feel fuller for longer. They’re also high in vitamin K, vitamin C, and manganese-all essential nutrients that your body needs to function properly. If you’re trying to eat more plant-based foods, edamame beans are a great way to get your fix without having to sacrifice flavor!

A handful of sprouts or coriander leaves

Sprouts are a good source of protein, vitamins A, C, and K. They’re also a good source of antioxidants (like vitamin E), fiber, and minerals like potassium.

They can be eaten raw or cooked—most people prefer the taste when they’re boiled for about 10 minutes before being added to the bowl. I like them raw as well because it gives me more control over how much salt I want to use in my dish!

This makes a great summer meal.

Hawaiian poke is a healthy and delicious meal that you can make in any season. It’s great for summer, winter, and spring—and even early spring! It’s also super easy to make at home.

If you love to fish but don’t have time to go out for it every day or want something new on your menu but don’t want to spend too much money on ingredients (and let’s face it: most of us do), then this recipe is perfect for those situations! Poke is a simple dish to make. It doesn’t take long to prepare, and it’s super delicious! It’s also pretty healthy because you can use different kinds of fish in your bowl.
