This is the perfect recipe for an easy weekend lunch. Light yet nutritious. Packed with protein and good flavors, poke bowls are some of our favorite dishes. You can always switch salmon for the fish of your choice if you prefer. Regina came up with the idea of adding Aroeira Honey to the sauce. This honey has some depth that contributes to this asian-inspired recipe.
