Here’s an ono appetizer, from the Kakaako Fire Station, 3rd Platoon, that requires very little cooking. Make it for gatherings with family and friends this football season. No matter who wins the game, this dish will be a winner!


  • 1 package corn tortillas
  • 1 lb. fresh ahi, 1/8-inch cubes
  • 1 small sweet onion, chopped
  • 6-8 stalks green onion, chopped
  • Sriracha mayonnaise
  • Wasabi mayonnaise
  • Unagi sauce
  • Furikake

Cut tortilla wrappers into 8 even pie-shaped pieces and fry in avocado or sesame oil. Be careful not to burn tortillas. Lay the fried tortillas on a baking pan.

Evenly spread the ahi and sweet and green onions over the tortillas. Drizzle with Sriracha and wasabi mayonnaise. Put unagi sauce in a pastry bag or plastic bag with a small hole in the corner. Drizzle sauce over nachos. Sprinkle furikake on top.
