Poke Bowls (pronounced Poh-key) are the new trend in cuisine. Nothing fancy, it’s a Hawaiian dish served in a bowl full of heavenly good stuff. Local fast food restaurants adopted the trend and developed dishes such as “Taco Bowls”. So, I decided to make a recipe with what I had in hand at home at the time, to mimic what everyone is craving for lately, Poke. I am sure that you will love it.

2 Salmon steaks, cubed (@$2.25 ea. ($4.50)
2 tbsp. Angie’s Basting Olive oil (my link below) (.65)
2 tsp. Angie’s Dry Seasoning (my link below) (.40)
1 c. Brown rice medley (when cooked renders about 3 ½ cup) ** ($1.25)
2 ½ c. Organic chicken broth ($1.50)
1 can drained and rinsed chickpeas (.99)
2 c. chopped spinach ($1.50)
1 c. cherry tomatoes ($1.15)
1 avocado ($1.25)
Salt and pepper to taste (0)
Cook the brown rice medley according to the pack directions (35 minutes). Instead of water use 2 ½ c. chicken broth, 1 tsp. of my dry seasoning and ½ tbsp. of my basting oil.
Cube the salmon steaks, season with 1 ½ tbsp. basting oil and ½ tbsp. dry seasoning.
Chop the spinach and cut the cherry tomatoes and avocado, set aside.
Rinse the chickpeas and set aside.
Shortly before the rice is done, sauté the salmon cubes until golden brown in their own basting oil.
To plate, get a medium size deep bowl. Scoop the rice in the middle and add the Chickpeas, Spinach, Cherry tomatoes and avocado around it. Season accordingly to taste. I drip the basting oil where I sauté the salmon all over it for extra flavor. Done!
**I purchased the brown rice at Trader Joe’s.
