Quick Tuna & Salmon Poke with Purple Rice

Quick Tuna & Salmon Poke with Purple Rice


* Optional Substitution Note

Ingredients for 2 servings/bowls:

  • 5oz tuna sashimi or raw tuna (MUST BE sushi-grade)
  • 5oz salmon sashimi or raw salmon
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • juice from 1 clementine or half an orange – optional
  • 1/3 cup finely diced mango
  • 1 chopped red pepper (or jalapeño) – optional
  • 2 cups cooked purple rice (or jasmine rice, brown rice)
  • 1/2 large avocado chopped (not shown but recommended) – optional
  • Garnish
    • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds (white, black or both)
    • 1/3 cup chopped green onion


Step 1

Cook rice according to the instructions given and set aside.

Step 2

Carefully cut the tuna and salmon sashimi into cubes. Make sure you use a sharp knife so not to shred/destroy the fish while cutting.

Step 3

In a small bowl, mix together the sesame oil, soy sauce and orange juice.

Step 4

Place the sashimi in a large bowl, pour in the sauce and add all of the ingredients except the rice. Using a spatula or large spoon, carefully fold the ingredients together so the pieces of sashimi and chopped veggies are coated in the sauce.

Step 5

Enjoy the poke over cooled, cooked rice and garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.

Step 6

Season with additional soy sauce but careful not to get carried away!

**Remember to adjust portions to compliment YOUR fitness goals.**

Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
