Loaded No Rice Tuna Poké Bowl With Hot Honey and Ponzu

Have you ever bought a poké bowl and wished you could make one at home yourself? Now you can. 

This is now your go-to at home poké bowl. It's loaded with all of the best ingredients, and will quickly become the best you've ever had IMHO. It's got fresh sashimi grade tuna, fresh red cabbage sliced thinly, wakame, sliced avocado, sesame seeds, fresh soy beans, finely sliced cucumber and carrot, pickled ginger, fried shallots and coriander. But the real bow tier is the mouth watering sweet and spicy Hot Honey, and the all famous Japanese citrus Ponzu. Both dressings are an absolute must and I am so excited to share these recipes with you! And dare I say it, this bowl is truly where your poké dreams come true.

Raw fish is one of the nicest ingredients in the world. Sashimi, poké, ceviche, tatake - it's all incredible, and fresh, and best served cold. Raw salmon and tuna are my favourite. What are yours? When I discovered poké bowls in Hawaii many years ago, I was hooked. Back home, I get my tuna poké bowls from Raw & Rice, but unfortunately, parking there is a rare commodity, and sadly I don't get to drop in for lunch as much as I'd like. Do you have somewhere close and convenient to grab a poké bowl?

I've been wanting to make my own poké bowl for ages and when I went down our local fish shop here in Noosa to ask if I could order some sashimi grade tuna, little did I know that the fresh tuna and salmon fillets we get from there are actually sashimi grade. I was thrilled to say the least! If you've got a fish monger close by, or maybe your local fish and chip shop could help, definitely ask! There's nothing better than grabbing a couple of tuna fillets and getting your fish monger to slice them up nicely for you.

So "what is Ponzu" I hear you ask? It's an elevated version of soy sauce. It's Japanese, and therefore all things lovely and citrusy. It's made with soy sauce, lime juice, lemon juice, mirin, rice vinegar, dried bonito flakes (katsuobushi) and dried kelp (kombu). You can get all of these ingredients at most supermarkets these days, but if you can't find what you need or want to keep it simple, soy sauce is totally fine.

What dressings do you love on your poké bowl? I love a hot and savoury sauce on mine and I usually get ponzu and wasabi mayo. But for this homemade loaded tuna poké bowl, I wanted to create a simple sweet and hot sauce in addition to ponzu fr you, which you can easily make and enjoy at home. All you need is honey and a fresh jalapeño! We have a Settler Hives honey growler at home, and I decided to get creative and make a Hot Honey with fresh jalapeños. Uh huh! This hot honey is insane! And pairs so well with the citrus salty flavours in the ponzu. You are going to LOVE making this poké bowl at home. I promise.
