Poke Bowl

Updated: Jun 8, 2022

As many of you probably already know, rice bowls are quite popular at our restaurant. Although we don't serve this particular rice bowl, we do sell everything you need but avocados to make it at home. A poke bowl is originally from Hawaii. Its roots are deeply rooted in Japanese cuisine. The word "poke" means "to cut into pieces", and it refers to the raw fish fillets or cubes served in a bowl with rice, dressing, vegetables, and condiments.

Poke Bowl

Serves 2

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 25 minutes

Total time: 40 minutes

Note: If you already have cooked rice, it will be much quicker.


  • 1 pack of salmon sashimi

  • 3 leaves of shiso (ohba)

  • 2 bowls of rice

  • 1 clove of garlic, or a half inch of garlic tube

  • 1 avocado

  • 1 tbsp of sesame oil

  • 1 tbsp of ajipon (ponzu)

  • soy sauce - to your liking

  • mayonnaise - to your liking

  • masago (fish roe) - as much as you want


  • Stop by Maido to collect all the ingredients you'll need. Once you're back at home, it's time to cook!

  • Once the rice starts cooking, prepare your other ingredients. Cut the salmon and avocado into cubes, press or grate 1 clove of garlic (or squeeze a half inch of garlic tube), and julienne cut the shiso (ohba) leaves.

  • Set aside the masago, avocado, and sliced shiso leaves. Now, in a bowl, mix your cubed salmon with the garlic, ajipon, and seseme oil. Add a little soy sauce for extra flavor.

  • Once mixed together, it should look like this.

  • When the rice is ready, place it in a bowl, then add the salmon and avocado. On top of that, sprinkle the shiso and masago. Finish it all off with some mayonnaise to your liking.

  • And there you have it, your very own poke bowl at home! Isn't it surprisingly easy? Hope you enjoy cooking, then eating!
