RA Sushi's Foodies Show Heart Charity Event: Vote for Short Order
|The Tropical Heat Roll|
Who could turn down the opportunity to make a sushi roll, co-host a fabulous party, and raise money and awareness for a local charity?
I couldn't, so I went down to the South Miami restaurant and worked with their chef to make a sushi roll that best represented the flavors of our city.
The Tropical Heat roll features fresh mango, avocado, jalapeno, and tuna. It's accompanied by some sweet and savory mango salsa. As a finishing touch, a drizzle of sriracha is served on the plate for people who like a little more spice in their lives.
The charity I'm playing for is Tri-County Humane Society, a small no-kill animal shelter serving Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties. The shelter, which runs on a tight budget, rescues many dogs and cats from dire situations. Recently, they took in over 50 chihuahuas from a hoarding situation in Hialeah, where they were housed in an industrial warehouse bay.
