Deconstructed Sushi


Deconstructed Sushi

This recipe is from my friend Troy Stratton. Honestly, when he first told me about it, I thought it sounded terrible. But was I wrong! It is unusual, healthy, visually stunning, and best of all, delish! I recommend using a glass trifle bowl or similar serving dish to show off the beautiful layers. Be sure to scoop all the way to the bottom of dish when serving…you don’t want to miss any of the layers!
