Swedish Fish Candy Sushi with Rainbow Ramen

Swedish fish candy sushi with rainbow ramen noodles anyone? That’s right – you read correctly. Why, you may ask. Why not?

Candy Sushi

Ok, so I’m no sushi chef. But, I do enjoy making cute little candy concoctions. Last spring I made kosher candy sushi for Passover (you can make it minus the kosher ingredients as well). This time I went with a fruit roll-up, marshmallow fluff and fish (the Swedish kind, of course) creation. Let’s get this out of the way – it’s not a healthy snack by any means. If you want to give your child a nutritious after-school treat, by all means slice up an apple or peel a banana. This is a once-in-awhile, birthday party, fun-time, special day treat!

Now, what about the ramen? My son loves, loves, loves these noodles. I’ve seen rainbow spaghetti all over the place, so I figured I’d try it with ramen. Not that candy and ramen necessarily go together all of the time, but it’s a fun snack idea to try.

Before we get started, I have one serious caution to bring up – the Swedish fish sushi candy may pose a choking hazard to young children. It’s definitely not for kids three and under. When you look at all of the ingredients, you’ll notice that they’re all fairly sticky on their own. Combine them and they get massively chewy. While my 14-year-old was good with chewing the sticky sushi, your 4-year-old may not be. I’m always overly cautious when it comes to this type of thing. Seriously – ask my son. I think I may have cut his grapes for him until he was 10, and I’m the mom who refuses to give her kid gum out of fear he may try to swallow it. That said, be cautious when deciding if your child is old enough to chew something that’s quite so sticky. If taffy is a no-no now, skip the sushi (but, you can still give him the ramen).

Here’s What You’ll Need:

·        Ramen noodles

·        Food coloring

·        Plastic sandwich baggies

·        Fruit roll ups (we used the tie dye ones)

·        Marshmallow fluff

·        Swedish fish

To make the sushi:

1. Unwrap and unroll the roll up. You can go one of two ways here: Cut the roll up into long strips or make the sushi and cut it into pieces after.

2. Coat the roll up with a thin layer of marshmallow fluff.

3. Cut the fish into pieces. Place the fish pieces onto the fluff, about 1-inch in from the top of the roll up.

4. Roll your creation up.

5. If you chose not to cut the roll up at the start, do so now (making 2-inch pieces).

To make the rainbow ramen:

1. Boil the noodles for three minutes.

2. Strain and rinse the noodles under cool water.

3. Divide the noodles into four or more baggies.

4. Add two or three drops of food coloring into each bag. Close the bags tightly.

5. Mush and mash the bags, spreading the color across all of the noodles.

Now you’re ready to serve up the sweet creation! Plate it all together, and serve with a side of ‘dipping sauce’. Use a chocolate sauce, more marshmallow fluff or a fruit-flavored drink (we used blue raspberry).

  8. Situated at a corner on Mohammed Ali Street, this location has two doorways. When you get within and go up, there appear to be rooms soon after rooms just after rooms. It is all  perplexing, but just let the waiters guide you. As soon as settled, get some time to explore the menu. There are excellent “Tawa-taka-tak” goods and “Raan” dishes. You can consider a crack at paya soup, seekh kebabs, chicken tandoori and chicken afghani. Seekh kebabs are superior. The tandoori rotis are superb. They also have spots where by they serve other stuff like snacks, faloodas, kulfis etc. my company
