Advertising promotion

Admit it, you’ve been bitten by the viral recipe bug. We’ve been making mental shopping lists while scrolling through our TikTok and Instagram feeds. Who wouldn’t want to try making sushi at home or challenge themselves to gobble down spicy noodles when popular food influencers make it look so easy? With the launch of Woolworths’ extensive range of Asian-inspired ingredients, we took to our feeds to find out what’s trending to see if it’s really as easy as the influencers make it.

Sushi bake

Want to make sushi without years of experience, fresh fish and rolling? This viral TikTok recipe includes everything we love about sushi without requiring special tools or precision. Make a mixture of canned grilled salmon, cream cheese, sweet chilli sauce and spring onions and place in a baking dish with sushi rice and nori. Bake and serve with a side of your favourite Asian condiments. We love this recipe because you can still customise it with your favourite fish and toppings. If you want to splurge, top your sushi bake with tempura prawns, but if you’re on a budget, canned tuna will do.
