Hi there! I spent a little time in the kitchen yesterday and I’d like to show you what I’ve made. I was inspired by a post from this blog. (Hers looks better than mine so you can also skip my post and go straight to hers haha.) Personally, I had never heard of a Poké Bowl before. It reminded me of Pokémon but apparently is has nothing to do with that. Personally I think that ‘sushi massacre’ is a better name, since almost all the ingredients are also sushi ingredients. It’s like dissecting sushi and putting it all in one bowl. It looked amazing and sounded delicious though, so I really wanted to make one of my own.
I made enough for 3 people, even though it might not look like it in the pictures. I had to pick a bowl that looks good for the picture. (Priorities am I right?) This bowl was just a little small.
So lets start with the ingredients:
350 gr salmon
1 1/2 table spoon of black sesame seeds
2 table spoons of sesame oil
1 spring union
1/2 red pepper (no seeds)
1 1/2 table spoon (light) soy sauce
salt & pepper
300 gr rice
3 table spoons of rice vinegar
1 1/2soy beans
1 1/2 cup seaweed salad
1/2 Cucumber (depending on how much you like it)
You’ll want to start with cooking your rice since this will take a little time. Also the rice needs to cool down before you serve it. While the rice is cooking, you can start cutting the salmon into cubes.
Then add the sesame oil, soy sauce, sesame seeds, spring union, red pepper (no seeds) and salt & pepper to the salmon.
If the rice is done cooking, flatten it out on a plate and add 2 table spoons of rice vinegar. (You can add more if you like. Just make sure to taste it before you do so.) Then slice your cucumber into thin strokes and roll them like this. Add 1 table spoon of the rice vinegar for some extra taste.
Start slicing your avocado while your salmon is still marinating at room temperature. You can also add a little salt to your soy beans. I personally like them better when they’re salted. So by now you’ve basically finished all of the steps.
It’s time to put everything together in one bowl. So don’t forget your seaweed salad, nori seaweed and avocado. You didn’t do anything with them but that doesn’t mean that they won’t add an extra dimension to your bowl. On that note, I’d also like to apologize for forgetting to add the avocado to my very own bowl haha. I did add it when I actually served it but I forgot to add it for the picture.
(Just imagine this with some avocado slices)
So that’s it! It’s really easy and it tastes so so good. (If you like sushi at least.) If you don’t like sushi, you’re not going to like this haha. Let me know what you think! Thanks for reading!
