  • 1500 g watermelon, cubed
  • 5 g sesame oil
  • 50 g soy sauce
  • 2 g chili flakes
  • 2 g nori seaweed flakes
  • 30 g neutral flavoured oil


  • Top and tail the melon and peel of the rind with a knife. Then, cut the watermelon into large cubes.
  • Mix watermelon with sesame oil, soy sauce, chili flakes, seaweed and oil and leave the rest in the fridge for a minimum of 6 hours.
  • Reserve leftover marinade and place watermelon on parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 180 or 350 f for 1-1.5 hours.
  • To leftover marinade add garlic, chili and soy to enhance the flavour. Once watermelon is finished cooking it will resemble raw tuna. Transfer watermelon into a bowl while still hot and coat in the leftover marinade.
