Poke Bowl, Herring & Broad Beans

Since I love sushi, I do love Poke Bowls as well! It is an easy way to eat a healthy meal, and moreover you can adjust this recipe to your seasonal offerings. In the summer, there is herring available in the Netherlands which is great in this recipe. However if you prefer to eat salmon or tuna, feel free to substitute the herring for your favorite local fish!
