17 October, 2018 Poké Bowls… What’s all the hype about?
Poké bowls. What are they, and why are we hearing so much about them? If you haven’t heard about this recent food trend, then let us explain what all the hype is about. There must be a reason why these bowls of joy are so popular, but what’s actually behind this culinary craze?
Poké (pronounced “Poh-Kay”) originated in Hawaiian and is the long-running food choice of the islands surfers. Traditional Poké was made by fishermen who combined seasoned Ahi (Tuna) with seaweed and sweet onions. Laid on a bed of rice and salad to create a heartier meal, this combination forms the modern recipe we now know as the ‘Poké Bowl.’
Since then it has developed into a flexible dish that just as easily works with salmon, albacore tuna, red snapper, octopus, and other seafood as it does with its original ingredient. Part of what has turned this humble island main-stay into a worldwide phenomenon is its ability to be customised to different tastes. Many Poké shops offer a make-your-own style bowl, where toppings like soy sauce, sesame oil, sesame seeds, scallions, Maui onions, and cucumbers can all be added.
It only takes one look at the insta-worthy ingredients that go into a Poké Bowl to see its packed full of nutritious superfoods. Full of brain boosters, healthy fats, and lean proteins, these small delicious bowls not only taste good but are working wonders on your health. Poké Bowls have become the solution to a quick, convenient, fast food that won’t increase your time at the gym.
The relaxed nature of the Poké bowl means many simple recipes can generally be created by the casual chef in the comfort of your own home. While a DIY version can be made at home with the right ingredients, there’s no substitute for proper quality Poké Bowls made by the experts at Aloha Poké.
