The trend for healthy, tasty Poke Bowls is booming in UK cities and showing no signs of stopping! Now Kikkoman has created a convenient Poke Sauce so you can easily make it yourself at home.
What is Poke?
Poke (pronounced po-KAY) has roots in Hawaii when decades ago Japanese immigrants created this recipe of raw cubed fish and vegetables tossed in a soy sauce dressing, served over rice. The name Poke means “to cut crosswise into pieces”, referring to the preparation of the fish. Now appetite for the dish has gone full circle as these days people back in Japan are enjoying it, and popularity has quickly spread here.
Kikkoman’s brand new Poke Sauce is an authentic combination of its famed naturally brewed soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, lemon juice and a little chilli. It’s a palate-pleasing blend of spicy, savoury and sweet and as well as being perfect for Poke Bowl recipes, it can be used as a table sauce, dip and dressing for salads and noodles. Try it with avocado for a real affinity of flavours.
Recipe ideas for Poke Sauce
Poke bowls can be made in a variety of ways, but Kikkoman has made the sauce part easy - simply drizzle Poke Sauce straight from the bottle. Then all you have to do is choose and chop your favourite fresh salad ingredients such as diced fresh tuna or salmon, red onions, avocado, edamame, carrots, cucumber and sesame seeds. It’s a nutritious and colourful lunch option so give it a go. But don’t save Kikkoman Poke Sauce just for this dish, serve with grilled sausages, roasted vegetables or even dip chicken nuggets in it!
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Find in Ocado, Waitrose and Sainsbury's.
