WHAT IS POKÉ?

It is a popular Hawaiian dish made from fresh raw fish, and vegetables served in a bowl over rice. In my recipe I used raw spiralized vegetables instead of rice for the base. Poké translates as “to slice” or “to cut.” It refers to the sliced fresh ingredients on top of the rice.

Why should you make this recipe?

I love to eat raw fish combined with Asian flavors. Poké and sushi are two of my favorite meals.

FOOD SAFETY

Eating raw salmon is relatively safe. The FDA requires that fish that is going to be consumed raw should be frozen for at least 7 days to kill any possible parasites. I always have frozen salmon in the freezer and defrost it when I’m going to make this salad.

Please note that Pregnant women and young kids shouldn’t consume raw fish.

Helpful tips

Pick fresh fish from reliable sources. Ask questions about the origin of the fish. Do not use fish that doesn’t smell fresh. The fish fillet should have bright color. It should be firm and smooth to the touch. If the salmon is sticky or slimy to the touch do not eat or serve to others.

I don’t recommend keeping any leftovers in the refrigerator. Fresh fish spoils fast and the vegetables will release a lot of water. My advice is to prepare it right before serving.

I make my own sriracha mayonnaise. It is so easy. Add two tablespoons of your favorite mayonnaise and add few drops of sriracha in it. Stir and serve. Depending on how spicy you like it you can add less or more sriracha.

I used this spiralizer to make the vegetable noodles. If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can use a vegetable peeler to peel thin strips.
