Sushi isn’t our personal favorite. There’s something about room temperature uncooked fish that doesn’t sit well with us:
However, lots of people have friends and family who love Japanese cuisine, especially sushi. So, these Fresh Fruit Sushi recipes are the perfect middle-ground for those who don’t want to serve fish.
Plus, the variety of flavor combinations fruit offers is amazing. And if it is fresh, there’s very little produce that’s as juicy or as tasty as fruit.
(Warning: For this recipe you’ll need wax paper and a bamboo rolling mat)
