Fruit Sushi With Wasabi Cheese Croquettes

Ingredients used in Fruit Sushi With Wasabi Cheese Croquettes

INGREDIENTS:

  • cheese triangles
  • cucumber
  • white wine
  • blueberries
  • apple & strawberry fruit flakes
  • strawberry & cream flavour yoghurt
  • fiery wasabi flavour Pringles

METHOD:

Open the Pringles and check what they taste like. Yuck. Never mind. Open the wine instead and try that. You won't really be able to taste it after the Pringles but it does at least help wash them down. Put a saucepan on the heat and pour some of the wine in it.

Take the cheese triangles and remove their silver paper. Set them aside. Slice the cucumber into rounds about 1cm wide. Then, using a potato peeler, cut out their centres. Add the rings to the pan and poach them lightly in the hot wine.

Coring the cucumber is most effectively achieved using the potato peeler

Crush a handful or two of the Pringles into a bowl, preferably using a sutekki-noriten if you have one handy. If not, just use your hands. You may wish to wear gloves because of the caustic properties of fiery wasabi flavouring. Mould the cheese in your hands into small sausage shapes and roll them in the crushed Pringles until well coated. This should make at least three croquettes. Heat some butter in a pan and fry the croquettes for a few moments, ensuring they don't stick to the pan, and doing your best to avoid the smell.

Remove the cucumber rings from the poaching pan and arrange them on a serving plate. Mix the blueberries with the yoghurt, and spoon some of the mixture into the centres of the cucumber rings. Set the cooked croquettes onto the plate in an artistic arrangement. Decorate the cucumber sushi rings with the fruit flakes, and add a few to the side of the plate as well as a garnish.

Andy: "I've never tried that before with a cucumber, but it's not as entirely unpleasant as I had expected."

Kath: "It tastes like when you dunk a biscuit and you get to the bottom of the cup and get a mouthful - and then you discover it was a cheesy biscuit."

Al: "It's either surprisingly edible, or edible, surprisingly."
