watermelon ahiThese rolls are another set of sushi inspired by the book Sushi American Style. I first played with recipes in this book for my Glo Party, resulting in one of my favorite recipes of ahi watermelons. These watermelons were a nice offering for my friends who don’t like wasabi, but do like their maguro spiced up with chili paste.

What this cookbook does is continually remind me to try anything in a sushi roll. If its good, it’s going to be good encased in rice and neatly packaged for your mouth.

My sushi making this time around resulted in three rolls served with bright mango dipping sauce.

These rolls offer a nice mingling of sweet, salt and heat. And, they’re darn pretty too.
