Mango and Avocado Poke Bowl

I was lurking at the local supermarket one sunny summer day and saw this beautiful Salma fillet, which is a brand of really good quality salmon in Norway. I just had to have it! My mouth was watering at the thought of it. I went home and thought about how to best have this beautiful salmon fillet, and luckily a nice Poke bowl came to mind. 

Made some quick coconut rice, given my sticky rice making skills are quite lacking. Finely sliced an avocado and  half a cucumber and roast some sesame seeds add some cubed mango for a sweet point and voila magic in a bowl!

I hope you enjoy your Poke bowl as much as I did, I was bragging about it for days at work, showing off my fabulous poke bowl in pictures and recipe and discussing possible ingredients 🙂
