Poke bowls originated in Hawaii and are typically made with fresh, raw fish like salmon or tuna, vegetables, rice, and a variety of sauces and toppings. The name "poke" means "to slice or cut" in Hawaiian, referring to the way the fish is prepared for the dish. Nowadays, poke bowls come in many different variations, and can be customized to suit your taste preferences and dietary requirements.
