The blogger says that this version of sashimi is incredibly close to the real thing and even tastes better.

She had given her boyfriend the watermelon sashimi to taste test and he couldn't figure out what it was because it was practically the same, saying that he couldn't believe what it was when told.

Friedl was inspired to use watermelon after coming across a recipe on Pinterest of it being turned into steaks!

She's not the first foodie to turn this everyday fruit into a fish substitute. YouTube food bloggers avantgardevegan and Edgy Veg have also made their own versions of a variety of sushi including, nigiri, poke bowls, and spicy tuna rolls.

This isn't something you see every day, but we have to admit we are quite curious to give it a try.
