A delectable treat for stay home afternoons

If there's anything we have Hawaiians to thank for, it's poke bowls — the glorious combination of marinated raw fish, crisp greens, avocado slices, atop a bed of perfectly cooked rice. It's healthy and deliciously addictive, whether you're a health nut or foodie. While you can easily get your fix from our city's array of trendy enclaves, the dish is also simple to make from the comforts of your own home, especially with this recipe from Chef de Cuisine Hubert Hu from The Opposite House's Village Café in Beijing. Plans for the weekend? Get your hands dirty and build your very own poke bowl — who knows, it could be your best one yet.
