How to Carve a Watermelon Fish Tutorial

A Tutorial by Jörg Amsler

A carved watermelon fish is ideal for decorating a buffet table, whether indoor or out, and especially for barbecues. I’ve done a lot of them for seafood restaurants to accompany lobster or seafood catering; the carved fish is a fun way to carry out the theme. In New England, we have a lot of ocean front weddings. Whenever I’ve met with a bride planning a beachfront or ocean theme wedding, I would show her food carvings. I have even stacked different carved melons on dowels to create a tower and a stunning presentation.
