Jasmine Rice Poke Bowls

When my husband and I visited Kauai a year ago with some of our best friends, Bill and Jenny, one of the meals we loved was poke that we purchased at the fish market, bringing it back to our beautiful place to enjoy for lunch! Since then, I’ve been a huge poke fan … but never attempted to make it in my own kitchen.

One of the most favorite memories of summer for me so far is having my daughter, Abigail, home from college. Not only do I love and miss our baby girl while she is away (and her violin music that exudes class and sentimentality), her dad and I miss her cooking! (How about these Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes, or these Summer Spring Rolls?)

Being a fan of her photography and style as well, I also want to share some beautiful pictures of her here in Central Oregon, that her talented friend, Kyle Meck, who also lives in our neck of the woods, took of Abigail on Hosmer Lake a few weeks ago. (Follow Kyle on Instagram for more Oregon beauty.)

And oh, the beauty of having Abby home cooking for us this summer (in between working at the local coffee shop). Today’s recipe– Jasmine Rice Poke Bowls.

They’re super easy to make, and company-friendly. If you love sushi, like our family does, you’ll enjoy this summer dish.

Chop the ingredients ahead of time. Cook the rice.

Don’t forget the pickled ginger. For my palate, it’s a must with any kind of sushi or fish served raw.

And serve!

  1. Love the beautiful pics of your new surroundings in central Oregon–and your (beautiful!) daughter!!! ?
    Don’t know if it’s just my experience or not, so will let you know about this… when I go to your website to get recipes, your family photo (in front of your VW bus) is always ON TOP OF the actual recipe (weird I know!), which makes it hard to read, and much of it is unreadable!! ? 
    Sooo glad to see/hear how happy you guys are in your new home and area… Both look amazing, hope I get out that way someday to see it up close and personal! ?
