Smoked Salmon Poke
Poke, pronounced poh-kay is a traditional Hawaiian speciality. It is similar to sushi in that the fish is typically served raw on top of rice. It differs though in that it is served in a bowl and garnished with salad, herbs and even fruit. It is growing in popularity in Britain as it really suits a low-fat, healthy diet. Like sushi it is incredibly nutritious, but unlike sushi it doesn’t take long to make, as you can simply throw everything together in a bowl. It is great for using up any left over salad or cooked grains left in the fridge. I use sushi rice in this recipe but you can easily switch it for cooked quinoa or any left over rice from other meals. I also use smoked salmon rather than raw as I am not confident enough to serve raw fish. In fact, the inspiration for this recipe came from one in Tesco Real Food where they use cooked tuna steak and you can even use tinned if it is easier.
