Up your nacho game with these incredible tuna poke nachos, loaded with jalapeño, avocado and wasabi mayo.

Ingredients

  • vegetable oil, for frying
  • 25 wonton wrappers, cut in half diagonally
  • 3 tablespoons Kewpie Japanese mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon wasabi paste
  • ½ pound sushi grade ahi tuna
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 jalapeño, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • ½ teaspoon furikake flakes
  • 2 tablespoons green onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons black and white sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. In a deep-fryer or large cast-iron skillet over medium heat, add enough vegetable oil to fill about an inch deep in the pan. Heat oil to 350° F. Add 25 halved wonton wrappers to the skillet and fry on both sides, about 30 seconds on each side. Remove wontons and place on a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Continue until all of the wonton wrappers have been fried. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the mayonnaise and wasabi paste together until thoroughly combined. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. Slice raw tuna into 1-inch cubes. Add to medium sized bowl and season with salt and soy sauce. 
  4. Spread the wonton chips out onto a large platter. Top with the tuna, avocado and jalapeño.
  5. Drizzle chips with wasabi mayonnaise and sriracha, then top with the furikake, green onion and sesame seeds. Serve immediately.
