Today’s recipe for Lifted Poke Bowl is pretty straightforward. The flavor is outstanding and will have you dipping into the bowl for more and more. This is a perfect recipe for summer lunches and picnics outdoors. I have added the ingredients that I think go well but, you can add beans or any other garnish you enjoy. Try to keep as much raw as possible for maximum freshness.

Yield: 2 potions
Time: 30 minutes
Difficulty: super easy

10 oz. chopped or cubed sashimi-grade salmon
1 pineapple peeled and cubed
½ cucumber in batons
1 ripe avocado cubed
2 cups steamed white rice or sushi rice
2 Tbsp. crispy fried onions
1 Tbsp. white sesame seeds
2 Tbsp. pickled ginger
1 Tbsp. black sesame seeds
½ cup shredded carrots
Sushi mayonnaise
½ lemon
1 lime
1 clove garlic finely minced
2 Tbsp. cannaoil
3 Tbsp. soy sauce
½ chili chopped
½ ginger root peeled and finely grated
Salt and pepper to taste

Squeeze the juice of the lemon and the lime into a mixing bowl.
Add the finely grated ginger, garlic, chili, soy sauce, and cannaoil and mix well.
Taste the marinade and season if needed.
Mix in the salmon cubes until all coated and place into the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
While the fish is marinating, place your garnishes into a large bowl.
Place the rice at the bottom and arrange the pineapple, avocado, and carrots around the sides.
Once the salmon has marinated for at least 30 minutes, add it to the bowl neatly.
Use the marinade as a dressing over the garnishes and the salmon. You can strain it if you do not like garlic, ginger, and chili.
Sprinkle the sesame seeds and pickled ginger over the top.
Finally top with the crispy fried onions and enjoy this Lifted Poke Bowl.
