Family Meals Under £10: Leek Poké Bowl Recipe

Hawaiian poké – pronounced poh-kay – are wonderfully quick and easy to throw together when you’re in the mood for an Asian inspired dish or sushi but don’t have time to fuss around rolling it up. A combination of fresh fish, avocado and shredded vegetables combine in a bowl seasoned with a combination of toasted sesame seeds and nori known as Furikake this is a delicious salty and crunchy meal in a bowl.

Although traditionally made with raw fish, here searing the marinated salmon and leeks gives the dish a wonderful intense flavour.

One of the best things about poke is its versatility; Although traditional made with fish you could use seared strips of beef or tempeh or tofu for a vegan version. Try experimenting with different varieties of rice or grains and pickles to create new combinations.

Leek Poké Bowl Recipe

Serves 2

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 5 minutes plus cooking time for rice

Price per serving: £4.10 (groceries from ASDA)


  • 2 salmon fillets, boneless and skinless, cut into bite-sized chunks (you can use any protein you like)
  • 4 tbsp tamari soy sauce
  • Juice and zest of 1 lime
  • 2 tsp of sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ginger finely grated
  • 1/2 tsp honey or pinch of stevia
  • 1 leek shredded

Furikake Seasoning

  • 1 sheet of nori seaweed
  • 2 tbsp of sesame seeds toasted
  • 1 tsp stevia or soft brown sugar (optional)
  • Pinch of Sea salt and black pepper
  • Pinch of chilli powder

To assemble the bowl:

  • 80g cooked brown rice

  • 4 radishes, finely sliced
  • 30g pickled ginger
  • 1 tbsp fresh coriander leaves, chopped

  1. To make the furikake, simply place all the ingredients in a blender or mini chopper and process to form a fine powder. Set aside

  3. Heat the olive oil in a saute or frying pan. Add the shredded leeks with a pinch of salt and pepper and cook gently for 5 minutes until the leek has softened.  Remove the leek from the pan and allow to cool.
  4. Add the salmon and its marinade to the pan and cook briefly for a couple of minutes until just cooked.
  5. To assembled divide the rice between bowls with the raw vegetables and leeks. Top with the salmon (if using) and avocado and drizzle over the remaining dressing. Sprinkle over 2–3 teaspoons of furikake seasoning, or to taste and scatter with coriander leaves and decorate with edible flowers.

    That’s a really interesting dish. Not a fan of raw fish so I’d substitute lightly poached salmon.

      Good idea!

    This looks utterly delicious, although if i’m being 100% honest, as someone who doesn’t eat sushi or asian food i probably won’t be trying it out myself anytime soon! Totally going to suggest this recipe to my mum though as she loves this style of cooking! xx
