I’m excited to share something we’ve been having fun with this summer … Tuna Poke Bowls! Pronounced poh-KAY (rhymes with okay), if you’re a sushi lover (like us) this will be right up your alley. No nori or special rolling skills needed, it’s almost like a deconstructed sushi bowl that takes all of 10 minutes to prepare.
Once all the ingredients are chopped and marinated, I just spread everything out in servings bowls and let the family assemble their own. I love DIY dinners like this one (as well as tacos, burrito bowls, etc.) because then everyone can make their own dinner however they’d like, with no complaints! And my family LOVES sushi so this is always a crowd-pleaser at my house … with no pots and pans to scrub at the end—score!
