If sushi is your go-to, this poke bowl, packed with the rich flavours of smoked salmon, creamy avocado, and edamame beans, will be a delightful change.
Served over fresh jasmine rice and drizzled with a dressing that beautifully blends the tanginess of citrus, umami from soy sauce, and the warmth of sesame oil, this bowl is all about balance and simplicity. Perfect for a quick lunch or a light dinner.
Pair this bowl with The Yellowwood Organic Rosé, an organic wine that radiates the refreshing scent of strawberries and raspberries, further enhanced by the subtle citrus blossom and candy floss notes. On the palate, red fruits dominate, subtly interspersed with a hint of vanilla. The refreshing acidity of the wine balances the richness of the poke bowl, creating a delicious dining experience.
