Zhongified spicy salmon meets a heart-shaped bed of waffled crispy rice, arugula, and avocado to care for those taste buds and your feels this Valentine's Day. Recipe crafted by Christine Lee (@yejiskitchenstories).
4 oz. sushi-grade salmon, diced
¼ cup avocado, sliced
1 cup white rice, cooked
2 tbsp Zhong Sauce
1 tablespoon Kewpie mayo
1 tablespoon furikake seasoning
½ cup arugula, rinsed
Canola oil spray, for spraying waffle iron
In a large mixing bowl, combine the diced sushi-grade salmon, Zhong Sauce, Kewpie mayo, and furikake seasoning. Stir to combine and create a homogeneous mixture. Set it aside and allow the flavors to marry.
Spray some canola oil on each side of the preheated waffle iron to prevent the rice from sticking. Spoon a ¼ cup of cooked white rice onto the waffle iron and cook until the rice is golden and crispy, about 3-4 minutes.
Assemble your rice waffles by layering them with arugula, spicy salmon poke, and avocados. Sprinkle some toasted sesame as a garnish and enjoy!
