06 Step

This teriyaki salmon poke recipe works for any variety of salmon. But for the best flavor and texture, choose wild Alaskan salmon

Patting the salmon dry helps the sauce adhere better for more flavor.

You can swap out sushi rice for short- or long-grain white or brown rice. Or, another grain like quinoa, farro, or millet would work. For a low-carb version, use mixed greens or baby spinach as a base to your poke bowl.

This recipe is oil-free, nut-free, gluten-free, and free of refined sugars.

You can use another sweetener instead of honey, such as agave or maple syrup. Coconut sugar will also work.

You can make extra sauce to drizzle on top, just be sure you don’t contaminate it with a spoon that has touched the raw fish.

  • Other topping ideas include:
    • Seaweed salad
    • Shredded cabbage
    • Other fruit, such as peaches, kiwi, or pineapple
    • Chopped nuts, such as macadamia or cashews
    • Shredded carrots
