You may be asking yourself, “What the heck is a Poke Bowl?” right about now. I don’t blame you, I wondered the same thing. So, I went to Google for an answer. It’s actually of Hawaiian origin and pronounced Pok-eh. It is a raw salad served as an appetizer in Hawaiian cuisine. Pokē is the Hawaiian verb for “section” or “to slice or cut”. And now we know! I served it as an entree over a quinoa and brown rice mixture, instead of as the traditional appetizer, and it was ah-maz-ing!
