Video: How to Make a Poke Bowl with Kimi Werner

Poke bowls are a staple form of comfort food in Hawaii. They can be sweet, salty, spicy, or all of the above.

Customizing your own poke bowl is what makes them such a treat. The cold fish and hot rice combo demands that this dish is eaten upon serving and the variety of toppings to choose from is quite endless.

Usually yellowfin tuna is the fish of choice for poke, but any fish that is good to eat raw and can be cubed into boneless, skinless bites works well. In this video I’m using aku, or skipjack tuna, which is a less-sought-after fish but one of my absolute favorites.
