Really had the creative juices flowing this weekend.  See below for two additional creations:

 Watermelon pluot “tuna” maki rolled in basil leaf with a slice of yellow peach.

Yellow & white peach “scallops” broiled with brown sugar & drizzled with balsamic cayenne reduction & served with a dollop of green tea frozen yogurt.

Yellow peach “salmon/tamago” with cotton candy pluot, lime zest & coconut milk foam.

The flavors just explode in your mouth, the sweet and sour mixed with some bitters from the caramelized fruit, burnt brown sugar, zest, balsamic reduction & basil.  Opens up a whole new, creative way to enjoy your fruits~  Simple & so beautiful!

    Chef Kelly has done it again! The fruit sushi is so imaginative and looks incredibly delicious. I can’t wait to serve it at my next dinner party and wait for the comments to roll in. Thank you for the amazing idea. You could do a whole themed evening around the fruit sushi. One question – I am partial to the health benefits of brown rice versus white rice. Do you think it would taste good with a stevia-flavored brown rice as the base?

    This is mesmerizing art…way too pretty to eat. Make me want to paint a sushi still life…hey, has that been done yet?

    Do you cater?

    Kelly –

    Love this, I am all about the presentation…I am not a sushi lover but your idea makes it very inviting. Let me know next time you make them and I will be there.

    Looks like you are on the right track…

    I am the only one that has actually seen AND tasted the fruit sushi…it is absolutely unbelievable!! And the best part is that is contains no mercury and is actually good for you (in moderation of course). Chef Kelly will make fruit sushi the next big thing!
