Poke Waffles

by Yejiskitchenstories

These poke waffles are made with crispy rice waffles loaded with spicy salmon, fresh arugula, and avocado.

What you’ll need to make Poke Waffles:

  • Sushi-grade salmon: or any other sashimi of choice.
  • Avocado: this pairs well with poke, but feel free to use any vegetable you’d like!
  • Cooked white rice: for the crispy rice waffles.
  • Chili Oil: for some heat! But any brand of chili oil will work!
  • Kewpie mayo: for a bit of creaminess and to bind everything together.
  • Argula: these slightly peppery greens compliment the poke nicely
  • Furikake seasoning: this seasoning is optional, but adds more umami flavor to the poke mixture.
  • Canola oil spray: to spray the waffles irons.

How to make these Poke Waffles:

This recipe is quick and easy. All you need is some cooked rice, Poke (or toppings of choice), and a waffle iron!

  1. Let’s make poke. In a large bowl, combine diced sushi-grade salmon, chili oil, kewpie mayo, and furikake seasoning. Stir to mix the ingredients together.
  2. Next, make the rice waffles. Spray each side of the waffle iron with canola spray and add ¼ cup of cooked white rice onto the waffle iron. Cook until the rice waffles are golden and crispy, or about 3-5 minutes.
  3. Assemble the poke waffles. Place a layer of arugula onto the crispy rice waffle. Add a scoop of the poke mixture on top of the arugula. Finish by adding a few slices of avocado (or other toppings of choice). Sprinkle some toasted sesame as a garnish and enjoy!

Made these tonight. I saw the recipe on the FBJ site and bookmarked it to try. Very easy and delicious! Think I used more chili crisp as it came out a lot darker than your photos but it tasted great.
