What is a Poke Bowl? 

Traditionally, a poke bowl is a Hawaiian dish, with ‘poke’ meaning to cut or slice in Hawaiian, consisting of slices of raw fish such as salmon or tuna, combined with vegetables such as avocado and edamame beans, and placed on a bed of sushi rice. The dish is packed with authentic Thai unami flavors and unique seasonings. Poke bowls do come in multiple variations and don’t always need to include sushi or raw fish, such as this recipe that includes chicken. Instead of sushi rice, this dish features quinoa.

Packed with Nutrients and Tons of Flavor 

This Thai style chicken poke bowl features Thai flavors throughout. The chicken is cooked with a green curry paste and coconut cream or milk, locking in the slightly spicy, slightly nutty Thai flavor. This chicken poke bowl consists of quinoa, a popular whole grain known for its nutritional value – it is high in fiber and protein. The dish features multiple vegetables such as baby spinach, bean sprouts, carrots, cucumbers, cabbage, spring onions, and red peppers. These vegetables are placed on top of the cooked quinoa, and up the nutritional value of the overall dish even more. Peanuts, spring onion, and coriander garnish the dish, adding some crunch and even more flavor, and a peanut sauce made from ingredients such as peanut butter, lime juice, soya sauce, ginger, garlic, and coconut cream top it off.  

This dish is packed with exciting flavors and textures and will keep you intrigued and satisfied with each mouthful!
