Do you love serving colorful, vibrant meals that the whole family will enjoy? Homemade Poké Bowls are the way to go!

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!

What are some fun dishes you serve at home with fish?

My favorite ways to eat more fish are crispy fried fish tacos, fish sandwiches, tuna melts, and tuna salads.

The spicy sauce on top was a nice touch for us adults! Made this last week (using the nuggest since that’s what I buy for my kids). Thanks for another great recipe.

This is so fun! I didn’t have Gorton’s fish but I used this idea with their popcorn shrimp (a household favorite). Thanks!

I love Gorton’s seafood breaded fish. It’s the only fish my kids will eat and I feel good about it.

Looks delicious! We use Gorton’s fish too since it’s the only way my kids eat it. Going to try this recipe.

I made this with Gorton’s fish sticks and it was great. Just shopped it into small pieces and put it in the bowl. My kids didn’t like the spicy sauce but I loved it, it gave a “grownup” aspect to the meal.

Will definitely try this recipe. I think my daughter will be fine with everything. My son will probably only eat the rice. :/

    Lori - November 20, 2017 Reply

    So I made your recipe tonight and it was a huge hit! Both kids loved making their own bowls, and during the meal, we talked about all the different colors in our bowls and eating the rainbow. We added thinly sliced radishes to the mix as well. Thanks for the great post!

      I’m so glad Lori! We’ve been having fun with this recipe too.
