Poké Nachos with Baked Crispy Wonton Chips
What happens when you combine two different things? Well, I can tell you with certainty that combining nachos and poke is definitely something you should do. Even if you are not one of the people that find enjoyment in raw fish, I assure you that this poke nachos recipe might just change your mind.
To begin with, you are going to need the following ingredients: three-quarters of a pound of sushi-grade tuna. It is important that you get sushi-grade fish for safety. You will also need half a cup of various diced bell peppers, one small avocado, third of a cup of green onion, and one and a half tablespoons of sesame seeds. For the sauce, you will need two tablespoons of low-sodium tamari or soy sauce, one tablespoon of rice vinegar, two tablespoons of sriracha, and one and a half tablespoons of sesame oil. As for the garnish, you will need chopped jalapeno, fresh cilantro, diced green onion, and sriracha mayo.
To begin the preparations, start by mixing the sauce ingredients all together. Once combined, set aside the mix for later. Next up, take the tuna and chop it into small pieces. Once you finish chopping, take the rest of the ingredients and mix them all in a bowl. Take the sauce you already made and pour it over the ingredients. Fold the mixture carefully with a spatula until it is well combined. Add the seasoning as you see fit according to your taste and do be careful with sriracha mayo as it can pack a lot of calories. Lastly, before you serve, let everything rest for at least 20 minutes in the fridge. This way the flavors can get to know each other better.
