Is it safe to keep leftovers?

If you are cooking with raw fish, it is best to serve it right away. This Hawaiian poke bowl can be kept in your refrigerator for up to 24 hours, but I always recommend eating it fresh.

Poke Bowl Ingredients

  • ▢. 4th cups steamed white rice (sushi, whole grain, jasmine)
  • ▢. 1 Cup Carrots, chopped up
  • ▢. 1 Cup fresh pineapple, cut into pieces
  • ▢. 1 Cup Red cabbage, shredded
  • ▢. 1 Cup red pepper, sliced
  • ▢. 1 Cup Edamame, shells removed, cooked
  • ▢. 1 Cup Cucumber, diced
  • ▢. 1 tablespoon Sesame seeds or Japanese sesame seeds
  • ▢. Optional additional toppings: avocado, macadamia nuts, red pepper flakes.
  • Pat tuna dry with a paper towel. Cut into bite-sized cubes with a sharp knife.

  • In a medium bowl, add the soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, ginger, honey, and sea salt. Whisk until combined.
  • Put the diced fish in the bowl with the marinade. Swirl gently, then cover and refrigerate while you prepare the bowls.

  • For the aioli sauce, mix the mayonnaise and sriracha sauce. Put aside.

  • When assembling the bowls, the 1-cup quantities of each topping can easily be divided into 4 bowls. Simply distribute evenly in ¼ cup quantities. However, you can do any amount of any item you want. You can even omit or add anything you like.

  • First, add 1 cup of rice to each bowl. Next, divide and add the desired amounts of vegetables, pineapple and marinated fish.

  • Place the aioli sauce in a plastic sandwich bag and use scissors to easily cut a tiny edge off the corner of the bag. This way you can drizzle the aioli sauce over the poke bowls. You want the cutout to be small so you can control how much comes out. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and enjoy this island meal!
