Any sushi lovers out there already know all about tuna poke. And if you don’t, get ready to fall in love. Originated in Hawaii, poke has all the deliciousness of a spicy tuna roll, amplified to another level of juicy, sweet and salty flavor.

Crispy fried wonton chips

So full disclosure, these crispy fried wonton chips are definitely NOT traditional or gluten free, so neither are these tuna poke tapas.

And I know this is bit off course for my blog so I’d be lying if I said this recipe didn’t feel a liiiittle wrong. But I made this appetizer for a client’s new wine label launch and it was so popular I had to share it on here.

So if you’re allergic to wheat (like me) or gluten free for whatever reason, feel free to slap this avocado tuna poke on some corn chips, rice crackers or eat it straight outta the bowl like I did 🙂

AND if you can find some gluten free wonton wrappers, let your girl know, pls. These had me drooling both at the event and while recipe testing.

That said, I did find an awesome hack that makes the tuna poke gluten and soy free. Substituting coconut aminos for soy sauce is not only a great allergy friendly swap, it also adds an amazing layer of flavor!

The sweetness of the coconut aminos creates almost a teriyaki like sauce that works really well with the salty seaweed topping.
