Dishes That Made it Big on TikTok in 2022

If it’s a weird trend, you can pretty much assume that it came from TikTok. The social media platform is littered with bizarre ideas (NyQuil chicken, anyone?), but, now and then, you find some gems. 

In 2022, TikTok users were interested in pasta chips made in the air fryer, an odd pink sauce that was enveloped in controversy, and baked oats that could pass for dessert. Here are three dishes we found on TikTok that we won’t mind making again in 2023.

Salmon Rice Bowls

Deconstructed food is in and that is very good news for those of us who struggle to assemble food into something edible. If you adore sushi but it’s definitely above your skill grade, this version still gives you all the sushi flavors, but is way easier to make. Using cooked salmon, combine it with rice, soy sauce, kewpie mayo, sriracha, and avocado, and you have yourself a salmon rice bowl. Use roasted seaweed sheets to scoop it all up.

Butter Boards

Some groaned when they heard about this trend, but butter lovers were in heaven. Chef Justine Doiron envisioned it as the new charcuterie board and we’re right behind her. Spread softened butter on a board, sprinkle any toppings you like, and indulge with crusty bread.


I like this one idk I’m in a silly goofy butter mood

Cloud Bread

Want your “bread” to come in funky colors and jiggle a bit? Then give cloud bread a try. All you need is eggs, sugar, and cornstarch; though many add food coloring so that it comes out pretty as well as tasty.
