Trendy Salmon Bowl

After seeing a thousands Instagram post of trendy Poké Bowls, you might aswell believe the hype and try to make this Hawaiian Street Food yourself. Or just fly to Hawaii and eat it there. Here is my take on Salmon (or why not Tuna?) in a Bowl!

Ingredients for 2 bowls:

Sesame Salmon

200 g of high quality salmon (or tuna)

1 tablespoon of black sesame seeds

1 tablespoon of sesame oil

Bunch of spring onion or chives

Mango & Avocado Salad

1 ripe mango

2 ripe avocados

Half a red chili

Half a cucumber 

1 lime

1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger

1 tablespoon of rice vinegar 

1 tablespoon of brown sugar

Bunch of fresh coriander or chives

Sea salt and pepper to taste

Soy Mayo

2 egg yolks

Sunflower- or rapeseed oil

Japanese soy sauce to taste

Half a red chili

Toppings and sides

Bundle of radishes

1 teaspoon of honey

1 tablespoon of vinegar

Splash of cold water

Raw cashewnuts

150 g of sushi rice

2 tablespoons of rice vinegar

How to do:

Start with rinsing the sushi rice under cold water. Let rice sit covered in cold water in a pot while preparing the rest. Prepare the pickled radishes by slicing them thinly. In a bowl, mix a bit of honey with vinegar and water. Adjust acidity and sweetness then blend in the radishes. Make sure that the radishes are covered with vinegar. Continue with cutting up salmon in small cubes, add sesame oil, sesame seeds and finely chopped herbs in a bowl. Put in fridge covered. Next up is the mango and avocado salad.

Start by preparing the dressing. Squeeze a lime, grate ginger and mix with brown sugar, sea salt ad pepper to taste in a bowl. Mix well and then peel, chop and dice mango and avocado in small pieces. Core and cut half a cucumber and finely chop herbs and chili. Add all the ingredients and to the bowl with the ginger dressing. 

Now its time to start boiling the rice. Towards the end, add a splash of rice vinegar and some salt to taste. While the rice is cooking, beat up the egg yolks in a bowl, and slowly drip in oil while constantly whisking. When the mayonnaise is thick enough, add a splash of Japanese soy sauce and finely chopped red chili. 

Grab your favorite bowls and start off with rice in the bottom. Add salmon, mango and avocado salad, pickled radishes, cashew nuts and good spoonful of soy mayo. Find a spoon and enjoy.
