Learn How To Make Tiger Sushi!

Sushi Video Animals

Many of us are willing to toss around the word “cook” when we're messing about in the kitchen. Food shows, internet recipes and even the paper cookbook provide us with a ton of ideas about what to prepare for dinner.

So while some of us are pretty handy in the kitchen, it takes a whole different class of cook to take on the name “chef.” These food artists take seemingly common (or uncommon) ingredients and turn them into some crazy dishes that they claim you can do yourself at home!

Let’s take a look at your next contribution to the Japanese pot-luck dinner, the Tiger Sushi Roll!

You might be familiar with the name Davy Devaux, whose YouTube cooking show How to Make Sushi has been showing us how to make some incredible sushi for the past three years. One of his newest videos features another animal, and after watching, it makes us want to prepare some sushi rice and level-up our cooking game!

Davy calls it the Tiger Sushi Roll, an uramaki (“outside roll”) dressed up to look like our favorite co-king of the jungle. This crazy-looking roll combines mangoes, a few strawberries, squid ink, a couple of thickening gels and a butternut squash along with some salmon tartare to create an unbelievable roll that we're sure tastes as good as it looks!

It takes some preparation and time to pull this one off, but if you can manage it, you’ll surely be the talk of the town. Watch the (14-minute!) video to see how he does it!
