Matt and I fell in love with the Hawaiian Poke Bowl from Pupukea Grill food truck on the North Shore of Oahu while we there for a friends wedding 18 months ago- You can view the adventure here.
Poke bowls are a Hawaiian speciality consisting of diced raw fish, rice and an assortment of vegetables, we recreated this concept adding in small alternations like the crispy skin salmon and sweet potato. It is a super quick, super healthy and most importantly super tasty meal, that you can easily customize to your liking!
