Wasabi salsa with homemade tortilla chips

07 Jun 2019



Makes a dessert bowlful of salsa, enough for about 8 as a party snack

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Cooking Time: 5-7 minutes


You will need:

For the pork balls:

  • For the tortilla chips:
  • 8 soft flour tortillas
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • a little flaked sea salt

For the noodles:

  • For the salsa:
  • 200g cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 ripe avocado, finely chopped
  • ½ red onion, finely chopped
  • a small bunch or fresh coriander, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp caster sugar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3-4 tsp freshly grated wasabi

What to do:

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Cut each tortilla into half, then quarters, then each quarter into half again, leaving you with 8 triangular wedges. Spread out on a couple of baking trays and drizzle over the olive oil. Season with a sprinkle of sea salt and toast in the oven for about 5-7 minute or until crisp and lightly golden. This time may vary a little depending on the thickness of the tortillas. Set aside to cool.

Make the salsa by mixing together all the ingredients except the wasabi. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Set aside for the flavors to infuse at room temperature for 30 minutes (or up to 3 hours if you like).

When you are ready to eat, stir though freshly grated wasabi to taste - about 3-4 teaspoons.Serve in a bowl with the tortilla chips for dunking.
