Poke is everywhere at the minute, and as we move into the warmer months, there’s nothing quite as good as the refreshing flavours of a delicious poke bowl!

Those of you that know me well know I have a huge soft spot for Mexican (as long as it’s not spicy… no deal!), so I thought… what if. So I created a deconstructed mexican poke bowl! Why deconstructed… well to start it’s all separate, however then you are able to add the different components to your hearts desire.

See below for my quick, easy and super tasty take!
