Salmon Poke Bowls with Crab Salad

Easy Salmon Poke Bowls with Crab Salad, seaweed salad, brown rice, and avocado. These delicious bowls are packed with flavor and give you a marvelous sushi experience in the comfort of your own home!

If you’re into raw fish and haven’t tried making poke bowls at home, I assure you, the process is easy and fun! 

The only complicated part about making poke bowls is finding the best source for sushi-grade fish near you. Once you find a supplier of sushi-grade fish, the rest is smooth sailing!

I encourage you to read my Salmon Poke Recipe  post before proceeding with these poke bowls, as it gives you everything you need to know about making poke safely and deliciously at home.

My favorite poke bowl ingredients are salmon poke, crab salad (which I make homemade using real crab from a jar), seaweed salad (which I buy from my seafood supplier), steamed white or brown rice, and avocado. I like topping it off with sesame seeds and sometimes some green onion.

There is plenty of room for adaptation here, so you can use this as inspiration for all your poke adventures!

Let’s dig a little deeper!

What is a Poke Bowl?:

Poke Bowls are big bowls of sushi-grade fish marinated in a tasty sauce with rice, and all sorts of add-ins depending on your personal taste. Poke bowls typically include one to 3 different types of fish or seafood, pickled cucumbers or ginger, edamame, mango, avocado, and a couple of different sauces. 

Let’s talk more about these ingredients!

Greek Chicken Spinach Salad (Paleo, Whole30, Keto)

Herby Greek Chicken Salad with baked chicken, spinach, avocado, red onion,pine nuts, and an amazing Greek salad dressing. This fresh and flavorful dinner salad recipe is a filling, clean meal worthy of putting on repeat!

The good news is, this spinach salad is cool, crisp and refreshing on a hot summer’s day (not to mention super nutritious and filling!).

The bad news is…we must cook chicken. From a scientific standpoint, this does require heat.

I don’t make up the rules. Nor do I often follow them.

But the good news is (part two), the chicken is crazy tender and lovely, and can just as easily be grilled or baked…pick your passion!

AND the good news is (part three) this salad is CRAZY herby and will take you away on a mental vacation to the beautiful Mediterranean.

At first glance, this recipe appears to call for eleventy billion ingredients; however, you’ll notice many of them are herbs or spices for the salad dressing and the chicken marinade, many of which cross-over to both the dressing and the marinade. 

AND most of which you likely already have in your spice collection!

Don’t worry, the process is easy – it’s a 3-stepper.

We..

  1. Make the dressing
  2. Marinate and bake the chicken (okay, that’s two steps, but three always sounds more enticing than four).
  3. Assemble the salad.

Here’s how this plays out in detail:
