Poke bowl with salmon and furikake

poke bowl with lofoten seaweed
[Po-kay bowl]. This is a traditional Hawaiian dish with it’s roots in Japanese cuisine. Around the end of the nineteenth century, there was a large influx of immigrants to Hawaii from Japan, who came to the Pacific to work on the sugar and pineapple plantations. Hawaii and Japan are both seafaring cultures, and both have long traditions of enjoying raw fish, so it’s no surprise that this fusion dish became extremely popular. Today you can find poke bowls everywhere from street food vendors to fine dining restaurants, and you can of course make your own! This is a colourful dish that can be adjusted to anyone’s taste. We topped ours with Lofoten Umami for a Hawaiian/Japanese/Norwegian fusion!

Our answer to Japanese furikake, with a northern twist! Lofoten Umami is a blend of winged kelp, dulse, sesame seeds and authentic Lofoten stockfish - arctic cod dried naturally in the sea breeze according to traditional methods. Lofoten stockfish has Protected Geographical Indication status, which puts it in the same class as champagne. This is a uniquely delicious seasoning that encapsulates the history and future of Lofoten food traditions.
