5 Gourmet Poke Ideas - Spilucco's Recipes

The beautiful season is finally arriving, and with it the desire for fresh and light meals, but without ever losing sight of taste and authenticity.

For some years now, the Pokè trend has been becoming popular here in Italy too, and poker shops can be found in all cities , and I must say that they can often represent a valid option for a quick lunch break.

However, as you can imagine, we at Spilucco are not lovers of fast food, where low quality, non-traced ingredients from intensive farming are often used to ensure an advantageous price.

Precisely for this reason we decided to sift through the shelves of our warehouse to create Gourmet Pokè recipes, very tasty and with quality ingredients.

Gourmet poke ideas and recipes with organic ingredients

You can find most of the ingredients on our shop (you will find the links in the recipes), for others such as fish or fresh vegetables we recommend you choose trusted suppliers, such as farmers or small farms that sell organic products from their garden.

What is Poke:

Poke is a traditional dish of Hawaiian cuisine, characterized by pieces of marinated raw fish, usually tuna or salmon, served on a base of rice and enriched with a variety of condiments and fresh accompaniments, in bowls called bowls (hence poke bowls). Originally a quick and healthy meal eaten by Hawaiian fishermen, poke has gained popularity around the world due to its freshness and versatility.

Let's now see our Gourmet Poke recipes.
