It’s almost fall break in the midwest now but there just too much heat and rain this year that it feels like we live in a tropical area. So, let make some treat for the kiddo with this Crazy mango sushi roll. This sushi roll is fully cooked, looking awesome with its vibrantly orange and has all the salty sweetness that any boys or girls would love. It’s like eating a yummy appetizer with fruit.
To make this roll you would need mango, of course. Ripe and sweet ones work best. A couple of large shrimp would be needed for the tempura ingredients. You could, however, replace the shrimp with other things like salmon, imitation crab, or even pure veggies like asparagus. For the tempura batter, follow my recipe here. You could also add some cucumber for freshness if your little one could eat that.
This roll served best with its matching mango dipping sauce, but you can also use any kind of sauce, or simply just salt and pepper. I usually just bought 2 mangoes, thinly slice them, then pick out the best looking slices for wrapping. The rest, add to a blender and emulsify them into mango sauce.
