with mango / kale / avocados / spicy garlic mayo

Active: 30 min Total: 30 min
These poke bowls got high praise from our members last year as a great, no-cook meal for the middle of summer, so we're bringing them back. If you haven't come across poke bowls, they are like burrito bowls made with sushi-inspired ingredients. For this paleo version, top shredded kale with fresh raw fish and then pile on other fun things like avocado, mango, and spicy garlic mayo for a creamy finish. Check out this video to see how it's done!
Smarts: These bowls are so simple that the fish really needs to be the star. Make sure to get sushi-grade tuna (or salmon). Tell your fishmonger that you plan to serve it raw so that he / she can point you towards the best fish. If there's not a great fresh fish option, buy pre-cooked cocktail shrimp that can be prepared in the same way.
