Poke Nachos combines my two favorite things: Poke + Nachos. This easy recipe calls for Wonton chips, which can be difficult to find, so make them yourself or replace with a different chip, such as tortilla or taro.
- Poke: Marinate your own fish or buy some premade poke at the store! I like to make my own poke with my Ponzu sauce.
- Wonton chips: Whip up fresh wonton chips in your air fryer or oven.
- Masago: Caviar is a popular sushi topping and ingredient. It’s an orange-colored fish egg that has a sweet yet salty taste.
- Avocado: Add diced avocado for creaminess to your nachos.
- Green onion: Slice a whole green onion and sprinkle on top to add a fresh bite.
- Sauce: Add sauce of choice to your nachos. I used a Sriracha mayo to top off my poke nachos.

Start with your wonton chips and then start building. Add your poke of choice – generally tuna or salmon, masago, avocado, onion and top off with sauce.
