Expert Tips

Cut the avocado last, as it oxidizes quickly.

For those who consider grapefruit a very bitter fruit, I will tell you that red grapefruit is an excellent alternative. When it’s perfectly ripe, it actually has the sweetness of an orange, with a pleasant citrus twist. This Sweet and Sour Sushi is a versatile dish that you can enjoy as a starter, side dish, dessert or simply as an anytime snack. With the natural explosion of colors found in fruits and the simplicity of its elaboration, this dish becomes a very eye-catching decoration on your table, its soft texture seemingly melting in your mouth. Enjoy!

Directions

  • 1 Peel grapefruit, including most of white membrane. Cut crosswise into four equal pieces. Scoop everything out, leaving only the pulp. Slice into half-moon pieces (about 1/8-inch). Then, cut half-moons widthwise into smaller pieces, about the size of your pinky finger in width.
  • 2 Peel the mango. Cut the mango into long, thick pieces (at least 1/2-inch). To get these thick pieces get as close as possible to the seed; cut the fruit lengthwise. From the thickest piece, take out thin and long strips that can be rolled up; lay strips on a paper towel to absorb moisture. The number of strips will determine the number of rolls you can make.
  • 3 Cut avocado into small pieces.
  • 4 Lay a strip of mango flat and place a small piece of grapefruit in center. Then place an avocado piece on top.
  • 5 Roll up one of the ends of the strip of mango over the grapefruit and avocado like a wrap. Do the same for other end of mango.
  • 6 Insert a wooden skewer from one end to the other so piercing every piece of fruit, allowing to stay in place and work with it easily.
  • 7 Place the plate where you will serve it. Add a drop of grapefruit juice over the avocado to each roll in order to prevent oxidation.
  • 8 Lastly, sprinkle sesame seeds and pepper flakes to taste over the sushi rolls.
