So I have only had poké twice in my life. First time in Montauk this summer at Happy Bowls. Then the other time was when we were moving out of our apartment in Chelsea back in August. Both times I fell in LOVE with the flavors and how delicious this poké fad is.
I never really considered making my own at home until I realized how expensive it is to buy one all the time when you’re craving it. It can cost over $15 for a solid poké bowl with the works in it.
This Easy Spicy Salmon Poké Bowls is made with just 7 ingredients! I found sushi grade salmon at my local Whole Foods, so check your local grocery store or fish market, they likely have it too.
I used GoAvo’s Avocado Spread instead of the spicy mayo sauce most poké bowls come with. GoAvo is SO perfect for this. It is made with all clean ingredients, nothing artificial. It is also non-GMO, vegan-friendly, soy and gluten-free. You probably remember GoAvo from those Roasted Cauliflower Tacos or Chickpea Salad Stuffed Avocados. I use GoAvo a few times a week in various dishes or just on my sandwich, quesadillas, anything!
I like to think of GoAvo as the go-to if you want a healthy version of mayo and are afraid of classic mayo (aka me). They have chipotle and basil GoAvo too, which are both SO dreamy. The basil has such a nice flavor to it, I love it on a sandwich with arugula, avocado, goat cheese, mmmm.
Underneath all of the spicy salmon chunks in my poké bowl, I added some edamame, fresh avocado chunks too. I wanted to use zoodles after having it once with poké but I couldn’t find any organic zucchini anywhere! The struggle was real. But if you do have some, throw it in too! It is SO good.
