TikTok Dinner Recipes To Try Out This Weekend

Cute dog videos aren't the only thing on the app

Love it or loathe it, you can’t deny that TikTok is making waves around the world for its snappy videos, hilarious and heartwarming in equal measure. Gas clips of dogs singing aren’t the only thing emerging from the app though, it’s also the birthplace of current food trends too. After the mad year and a half we’ve spent indoors, we’ve road-tested them all, from the good, the bad, to the downright stupid *coughs* pancake cereal. Now, we present to you the recipes that are actually worth giving a go.

You will need:

  • Cooked salmon
  • Rice  (amount to your preference)
  • Ice cube
  • Soy sauce
  • Sriracha mayo
  • Kimchi
  • Avocado
  • Roasted seaweed

Method: 

  • Flake up your cooked salmon and fluff your rice together, using a fork.
  • Pop an ice cube on top if your ice is leftover, this will add moisture back into it when you heat it. If you’re making fresh rice, skip this step.
  • Heat everything up in the microwave and then top with soy sauce, sriracha mayo, slice up your avocado, and pop your kimchi on top.
  • Enjoy with roasted seaweed, you can wrap your rice up inside it or pop it on top – whatever you please!
