What if the old cranberry jelly appeared on the buffet as ahi tuna?
Let’s add a bit of whimsy to the Thanksgiving buffet this year! You can still serve your fabulous homemade cranberry orange relish. But perhaps you also have some guests who love the cranberry sauce that comes from a can. Not that they don’t have sophisticated taste buds, they just like the tradition, comfort, and memories from the celebrations of yesteryear. So why not make them happy too? The cost is just a few minutes of your time plus one can of Jellied Cranberry Sauce and a couple tablespoons of cream cheese (with a drop of food coloring to stand in for wasabi)…or take the friendly hoax to another level by adding fresh lemon, shiso leaves, and a pickled ginger rosette.
How To Make Thanksgiving Cranberry Jelly Sashimi
Mix cream cheese with a drop or two of green food coloring to get the color of wasabi. Shape into a free-form ball.
Stack a few strips of pickled ginger, then roll into a rosette.
Place shiso leaves on a platter, fan out the cranberry jelly sashimi. Garnish with lemon, wasabi cream cheese, and pickled ginger.
