Keto & Paleo Salmon Poke Bowl

|Keto & Paleo Salmon Poke Bowl

This recipe is my take on a popular Hawaiian summer staple. Poke bowls are traditionally made with raw fish (salmon or tuna), marinated in soy sauce and served with sticky rice, pickled vegetables and avocado.

My version is grain-free, paleo and low in carbs, which makes it suitable for the ketogenic diet. It's high in healthy fats (omega-3 fatty acids and MUFA), fibre, magnesium and potassium. It's delicious, comforting, and so good for you!

Other topping options:


  1. Marinate the salmon. Mix coconut aminos, toasted sesame oil, lemon juice, vinegar and salt. Cut the salmon into ½-1 inch pieces and place in a mixing bowl. |Keto & Paleo Salmon Poke Bowl
  2. Add the marinade, chopped green onions and sesame seeds (or you can add the seeds just before serving if you prefer them crispy). |Keto & Paleo Salmon Poke Bowl
  3. Add sriracha and mix until well combined. Place in the fridge while you prepare the cauli-rice (here's a step-by-step guide). |Keto & Paleo Salmon Poke Bowl
  4. For best results, use a grating blade on your food processor to create rice-like shapes. I used my Kenwood mixer with a food processor attachment.
    Place the cauli-rice in a hot pan greased with ghee. Cook over a medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes and stir to prevent burning. In a small bowl, mix the vinegar, salt and Erythritol (if used). |Keto & Paleo Salmon Poke Bowl
  5. When done, take off the heat, place in a bowl and combine with the vinegar mix. Set aside.
    Cut each of the sheets in quarters and then cut each of the quarters in half. |Keto & Paleo Salmon Poke Bowl
  6. Crisp up the nori pieces. Place in a hot pan greased with ghee and crisp up over a medium heat for just 30-60 seconds. Season the seaweed crisps with salt.
    Halve and slice the avocado. |Keto & Paleo Salmon Poke Bowl
  7. To assemble, divide the cauli-rice equally into two bowls. Add the marinated salmon, crisped up nori and sliced avocado. Enjoy! |Keto & Paleo Salmon Poke Bowl

Looks yummy. I've been collecting poke recipes recently.
FYI, you marinate something in a marinade. That is, the noun is marinade and the verb is marinate.


Thanks for spotting that Smile


Did you know you can pickle those avocados?


No, I didn't but will try it! Smile
