Dot wrote in with this photo of some beautiful dessert sushi that she made (link).
The “fish” pieces are primarily pieces of dried fruit– a brilliant (and healthier) alternative to our all candy version. She also included some tips for future sushi endeavors, all of which sound like good points:
- Yogos fruit rolls come in green and seem to work well for seaweed, though not as pretty green as fruit rollups.
- Dried papaya, sliced, looks like Tuna! We also used dried mango and candied ginger for our ‘fish’.
- A tomato paste can is a good size to be a cookie cutter to cut out the round ‘slices’ and we just put slices of the fruit on to to similate the effect of a roll.
Neat stuff– we’ll have to include dried papayas in our next batch of sushi!
