Tokyo Joe's Sushi Roll in a Bowl Featured on Colorado's Best
Tokyo Joe's founder, Larry Leith, joined Colorado's Best's Joana Canals and Paula Haddock to introduce the fast casual restaurant's new poke bowls. Poke is a Hawaiian dish centered around fresh seafood and vegetables. Leith likens it to a seafood salad while Canals called it "sushi in a bowl."
Sushi rolls can be challenging for home cooks to make, but creating one of these bowls is easy. For the Colorado's Best segment, Leith made a marinade of soy sauce, sesame oil, green onion, sesame seeds and sweet onion. He tossed fresh, sushi grade, diced tuna in the marinade, recommending that it sit in all of that goodness for at least 30 minutes but up two two days in the refrigerator. The marinaded fish is served on top of rice and chopped cucumber and avocado are added with a squeeze of lemon. A light, healthy and delicious dish that you can make at home.
Leith did keep his "best recipes" a secret in the hopes that viewers will head to one of the Denver area Tokyo Joe's to "Eat Good. Feel Good."
