Poke bowls are a type of Hawaiian cuisine, and typically involve diced raw fish, accompanied by rice and vegetables. This recipe uses salmon, but you could also make a tuna poke bowl or even a mackerel poke bowl instead.

Oily fish like salmon along with tuna, sardines, kippers, mackerel, and anchovies, are a good natural source of omega-3. It’s recommended that adults consume at least one portion (140g) of oily fish per week to contribute to their omega-3 levels.
The health benefits of omega-3 can include helping to support normal brain function and vision, as well as maintaining cardiovascular health. As our bodies can’t produce the omega-3 they need to stay healthy by themselves, it’s important to get essential omega-3 fatty acids from elsewhere.
There are a variety of different ways to consume oily fish and our MINAMI® high-concentration omega-3 supplements are made from sustainably sourced fish oil from sardines, mackerel, and anchovies, while we also have vegan omega-3 softgels, made from algae oil instead.
