Here is a step-by-step guide on how to cut fresh poke from any of the finfish available on our site to make an easy poke bowl at home:
- Start with a sharp knife: A sharp knife is essential for cutting the poke into uniform pieces. A dull knife can crush the fish, making it more difficult to cut.
- Rinse the poke: Rinse the poke under cold running water and pat it dry with a paper towel.
- Cut the poke into bite-sized pieces: Using your sharp knife, cut the poke into bite-sized pieces. The size of the pieces will depend on your personal preference, but we recommend cutting them into small, bite-sized pieces for maximum flavor.
- Marinate the poke: Once you have cut the poke into bite-sized pieces, it's time to marinate it. Four Star Seafood offers a variety of pre-made marinades that you can use, or you can make your own. We recommend marinating the poke for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to fully develop.
- Assemble your poke bowl: Now that you have your fresh poke, it's time to assemble your poke bowl. Start with a base of rice or greens, add your marinated poke, and then top it off with your favorite toppings. Some popular toppings include avocado, edamame, cucumber, seaweed salad, and sesame seeds. And there you have it, an easy-to-prepare poke bowl using fresh poke from Four Star Seafood.
