#MMMonday: Sharkmelon



You have probably seen these at some point on the internet, and today's #MMMonday recipe reflects the highly-sensationalized Shark Week on the Discovery Channel.

While it may look super fancy and hard to make, this recipe couldn't be easier!!

So toss some burgers on the grill and carve up a Sharkmelon today for a fun summer treat! For more detailed instructions, head on over to watermelon.org!


What you need:

  1. Watermelon
  2. Knife
  3. Marker
  4. Grapes (or other round fruit to use for eyes)
  5. Spoon
  6. Toothpicks
  7. (Optional: Other fruits, some type of fish candy)


Step 1

Cut off a third of the watermelon so it can sit at an angle and not tip over

Step 2

Use marker to draw guidelines for your cutting (like when carving pumpkins!)

Step 3

Cut out the mouth and teeth. With a knife, cut off the green parts of the rind for the teeth

Step 4

Scoop out watermelon, leaving a few inches along the base (so it doesn't all spill out)

Step 5

Cut up watermelon and stuff into Sharkmelon mouth (garnishing with fish candy)

Step 6

Use rind piece from the mouth cutting as the dorsal fin. Attach with toothpicks

(Optional: Add other fruits to the mix for a nice fruit salad)
