Known as “The King of Island Foods” and nicknamed “Hawaii’s Burger”, the food concept known as poke, pronounced POH-kay has gained huge popularity in South Africa.

Even though it originated in Hawaii, the concept has evolved and many have placed a new spin on the Poke Bowl take.

The idea behind poke bowls is to combine different flavours onto one bowl, having a main protein, a choice of starch and various salads.

Below are our 3 favourite Poke Bowl combinations.

Protein Marinades
For protein you can use Salmon, Tuna, Tofu and we’ve found potstickers work really well.

  • Salmon/Tuna

    450g raw Salmon/ Tuna (make sure it is sushi grade)
    1/4 Cup Soy sauce
    2 Tbsp Mirin
    1 Tsp Sesame Oil
  • Tofu Marinade

    1 Tbsp Ginger minced
    3 Tbsp Soy Sauce or Tamari Sauce
    1 1/2 Tbsp White Vinegar
    1/2 Tbsp Maple syrup
    1 Tbsp Mirin
    1/4 Cup water
    1/2 Tbsp Olive oil
    1/8 Tbsp Wasabi

    This ratio of marinade is suitable for a full packet of Tofu (+- 300g).
    Make sure that the tofu is patted dry before putting it into the marinade. Keep it in the fridge over night before grilling/ baking or frying it up.


Brown rice, quinoa, red rice, barley, Mung bean vermicelli, rice noodles

Whats great about these salad dishes is that you can still keep them in the fridge for the week. Great meal prep recipes!
