How to turn watermelon into vegan sashimi

Thanks to TikTok, we have so many new recipes to try.

From the crispiest roast potatoes – which take 15 hours to make – to avocado fries and ricotta toast.

But another recipe is also turning heads.

Vegan TikToker Eva Friedl (known as @vegaliciouslyeva) has shared how to transform fruit into vegan sashimi – with just five ingredients. 

Eva shows how watermelon can have the same likeness and texture as fish, when it’s marinated overnight. 

And the four-step process couldn’t be simpler.

She starts by cutting 300g of peeled watermelon into rectangular slices before popping them in a bowl with a tablespoon of toasted sesame seed oil, 60ml of soy sauce and ¼ teaspoon of grated ginger – then leaving for four hours.

Eva says: ‘You can also let it marinate overnight but then I would add a little bit of water so it doesn’t get too salty.’

She then cooks it in a pot for 10-15 minutes and drains before dipping the watermelon in toasted sesame seeds – to achieve that classic sushi aesthetic.

The ‘vegan tuna’ can be served with fresh cucumber, pickled ginger and some mayonnaise and sriracha mixed together.

Eva’s plant-based idea has received more than 724,000 views on the platform and her creativity has left people stunned. 

One follower added that this recipe was perfect for her, as she’s allergic to fish.

While others have added their own serving suggestions. 

Another person commented: ‘I tried making this and it’s so amazing – I made a poke bowl and it was delish.’

Eva’s TikTok is also home to a plethora of other plant-based recipes, including how to make ‘carrot salmon’, ‘orange tofu’ and ‘vegan beef tartare.’

If you’re looking for more TikTok food to try, why not give frozen honey a go – or roast chicken drumsticks by hanging them from your oven.
