Easy to make for a quick, healthy midweek meal, these homemade Crunchy Fish Poké Bowls that even the pickiest of eaters will love!

If you’ve been on Instagram or Pinterest in recent weeks, you might have noticed that poké bowls (pronounced poh-kay) are everywhere! With restaurant chains popping up wholly dedicated to poké, this dish is more available than ever. They are the latest craze, and I for one am not complaining.

As you can see from the video below, these poké bowls are super easy to make, filled with protein from Gorton’s Crunchy Breaded Fish and have lots of colorful veggies.

Ever since my husband and I went to Hawaii last year, I have had a slight craving for them, on the regular! So of course, whenever I’m in New York, poké bowls are a must!

My kids, on the other hand, do not seem to have the poké fever. As good as they are about eating (some) vegetables, they haven’t entirely acquired the taste for sushi or raw fish yet, something that would keep them from trying a delicious meal.

They do, however, LOVE Gorton’s breaded fish. Oldest trick in the mom playbook, merely swap out whatever your kids don’t like in a dish and boom! It looks completely different, and they’re all over it.

This thought, “hey, maybe I can just swap out the raw fish with crispy, flaky fish they already like” is what brought me to create this poke bowl using Gorton’s Crunchy Breaded Fish Fillets. They are crispy on the outside, flaky, provide lots of protein and fit into this meal idea perfectly!

Since the fish fillets cook in about 20 minutes, these poke bowls come together in a matter of minutes, for a speedy, delicious and trendy mid-week meal.

What’s great is that everyone gets to build their own bowls and select from the veggies offered, helping them select their favorite poké builders and learning to make great food choices.

Much like many Hawaiian dishes, this poké bowl is a melting pot of flavors. Pineapple, soy sauce, spicy mayo… Oh my! my mouth is watering again!

What’s fun about these poké bowls is the endless possibilities of toppings to be enjoyed. This recipe is just the tip of the iceberg! It’s easy to mix and match the veggies and other ingredients to you and your child’s liking; all while adding a serving of protein with the breaded fish.

Poké bowls are similar to taco night. All you have to do is prepare the protein, break out the fresh ingredients, and have everybody assemble their own!

Yum, now I want crunchy fish tacos. Something that’s easy to make with the crunchy breaded fish fillets. Oh, the possibilities!
