Prep time


Cooking time






  • Salmon
  • About 1.5 pounds of WILD skin-on salmon fillet

  • 3 Tbsp butter

  • 1 lemon, sliced into thin rounds

  • 1/2 lemon, juiced

  • 2 Tbsp honey

  • 1 tsp kosher or sea salt, or to taste

  • Optional*: 3-5 garlic, finely minced

  • Poke
  • 1 mango, diced

  • 1 avocado, diced

  • 1/2 cucumber, unpeeled and diced

  • 2 cups cooked white rice (I like basmati as it is naturally sticky)

  • Sauce
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced

  • 1/2 cup coconut aminos

  • 1 tablespoon raw honey

  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger*

  • optional: 1/2 teaspoon fish sauce

  • 1 tablespoon organic fresh cilantro or green onions* for garnish.

  • * none animal-based ingredients


  • Preheat oven to 375F.
  • Place Salmon on a sheet of foil with the skin side down. Raise the edges of the foil.
  • Add salt, butter, honey, and lemon juice evenly on top of the Salmon.
  • Seal up the foil (you will likely need to add another sheet on top to seal it). Place foil pack on a baking sheet and bake for about 15-17 minutes.
  • Remove the baking sheet from the oven, remove the piece of foil, or open up the packet so the Salmon is exposed but keep the edges raised to contain the buttery mixture.
  • Set oven to Hi broil. Broil salmon for about 3-5 minutes or until the Salmon is as golden as desired. Set aside to cool it down for 5 minutes before cutting it into pieces.
  • To make the sauce, mix all the ingredients in a bowl.
  • To create salmon rainbow poke bowl, just add in a bowl the rice, followed by the rest of the ingredients, and the sauce. Sprinkle some green onions for decoration and flavor if desired.

  • I like to create this same poke but with fresh tuna. To cook it, I seared it in a pan. I only add salt top it and cook it with ghee, or tallow. All the rest is the same.
