Fishbowl has partnered with The Beauty Chef, Carla Oates as part of a change to the menu for summer. Oates is behind a new bowl - the Tuna Glow Bowl, which mixes nutritious food and delicious taste. Last week, Edge of the Crowd went out to Fishbowl to give the new bowl a taste.
The bowl was filled to the brim with tuna, crunch and leaves, and plenty of flavour. With Yellowfin tuna sashimi from Ulladulla, the sustainable and responsibly sourced tuna is the key to the bowl.
On a bowl of sushi rice and mixed cabbage (author's choice), the bowl includes avocado, kale, cucumber, chilli, coriander, radish, zesty lime dressing, shiitake mushroom and almond gomashio.
The chilli and lime dressing pops out, giving the bowl a light and refreshing flavour. The spice is well matched with plenty of crunch - the almond gomashio, radish and kale give it plenty of texture.
The smooth, rich flavour of tuna is the key to the bowl, bringing together all the crunch and spice and zest - a wonderful combination for a sunny afternoon.
Oates, the mastermind behind the bowl, explained how the bowl is designed to look after the nutritional side of summer eating.
“The dark leafy greens are rich in fibre which act as prebiotics in the gut, feeding the beneficial bacteria in our belly and producing anti-inflammatory compounds known as short-chain fatty acids which have a multitude of health benefits,” said Oates.
"There's also avocado which moisturises the skin on the inside, and shiitake mushrooms—which improve energy levels, brain function, immune health and skin health.”
But despite all those health benefits, it's the taste that should get people excited. Packed full of flavour, this bowl is light and perfect for a summer afternoon by the beach, or with friends in the park.
Tuna is finally back on the menu at Fishbowl for the summer, and it's a good reason to get down and give the delicious Tuna Glow Bowl a try.
The Tuna Glow Bowl is available at Fishbowl locations in NSW, Victoria and Queensland now - starting at $17.90 with any choice of base.
