This wrap is incredibly easy and can stand in as a full meal. Treat the recipe as a blank canvas and add anything that you think might be good. Jazz up the rice a bit, or use a different sauce. Make it Asian with a soy dipping sauce, or take a Latin or Italian route…get creative!

I don’t typically post recipes with hard-to-source ingredients, but this recipe is a must. My dear friend Robbin Russell who moonlighted as my pastry chef for last week’s Underground Supper Club, was the creator of this life-altering deliciousness. The canistel fruit we used for this ice cream is a bit esoteric, but if you are in South Florida, go to a farmers market and you will find it. You want it soooooo ripe that it is almost moldy.
If you are elsewhere, don’t write me off just yet, I do give substitutions at the bottom!
Miami: For sources for this fruit, head to Pinecrest Gardens and look for Bee Heaven or LNB Farms….they will have it!
