Poke Bowls

Poke means “to cut or slice” in Hawaiian and is a really convenient and nutritious way to eat a meal.

They seem to be on trend at the moment (which tends to mean they can be quite pricey to buy on the run). This recipe is a mix between one I found in a Hairy Bikers recipe book and one from Miguel Barclay latest One Pound Meal book. I’ve made amendments based on what I had in my cupboard (for example I didn’t have balsamic glaze or soy sauce. So I used Teriyaki and balsamic vinegar instead).

Cooking doesn’t get lazier than this, so if you’re looking for something super tasty, quick, healthy AND cost effective then this is a must try!

Ingredients (for one portion):

Handful of cooked Prawns

75g Rice

4 Asparagus, trimmed

1/2 Carrot, ribboned

Handful of Green beans, chopped evenly

Sesame seeds

1tbsp balsamic vinegar

1tbsp Sesame seed oil

1tbsp Teriyaki sauce


Begin by boiling the rice. When cooked & cooled spoon into a bowl. Quickly blanch the asparagus and green beans (2 mins in boiling water) and drain. Arrange in the bowl and pop a handful of prawns next to them.

Mix together the balsamic, sesame oil and teriyaki sauces to create the dressing.

Drizzle then dressing over the ingredients in the bowl and enjoy!
