Salmon Poke

Beetroot And Bear Poke
Have you heard of Poke? It’s set to be this season’s hottest food trend and I can certainly see why.
Poke is a popular Hawaiian dish, made with raw cubes of seafood (usually ahi tuna or salmon) in a soy sauce-based marinade. It’s usually served with rice and fresh veggies which makes it a light, healthy and refreshing meal. It’s super versatile and customisable which makes it easy to prepare.

I spotted this stunning poke photo in my Instagram feed, and promptly asked Justine of Beetroot and Bear to share her recipe with us. Justine is a Durban based Chef, food stylist and recipe developer with a focus on fresh and seasonal produce.

Thanks for the recipe, Justine, I can’t wait to give it a try! Tag us over on Instagram, we’d love to see your Poke creations too!
