I happen to really love shark week.  My hubby and I are always suckers for shows like this.  Let alone a week full of awesome shark TV!!  We record the whole week and then watch it with our kids.  I am definitely going to make this watermelon shark.  My little bug loves watermelon and will especially love it if it looks like a shark.  What about you?  What are you going to do for shark week??

originally from here.
1 oblong, seeded watermelon
Dry erase marker
Large knife
Smaller utility knife
Large spoon
Paring knife (you can use the tip of a vegetable peeler)
2 large marbles
Toothpicks or wooden skewers
Swedish fish candies for garnish
  • Wash and dry the watermelon.
  • Cut off 1/3 of the watermelon at a diagonal angle.
  • Stand the remaining 2/3 upright on your work surface and use a dry erase marker to draw the mouth line and eye sockets.
  • Cut out the mouth. Trim back a ½" line of the green part of the rind for the teeth area.
  • Use a large spoon to scoop out the watermelon flesh, leaving 3" intact at the base.
  • Cut out the teeth, using a smaller utility knife.
  • Use melon baller to cut out the eye sockets that match the size of large marbles. Then use a paring knife to trim the green area around the eyes. Insert marbles.
  • Use the carved out rind from the mouth to make the dorsal fin, shape as shown in the picture. Attach the fin using toothpicks.
  • Fill the mouth with triangle shapes of watermelon, accented with Swedish fish.


  1. Hello Friend! I'm glad you're doing well and posting deliciousness! I have a question - I need one or two meal ideas that are freezable and easy to pull-out for a quick dinner. I want to give one to my friend that just had a baby and I wanted to make a couple for myself since we are due in 2 weeks. (Ivan & kids need substance while I chill in hospital for 4-5 days post-delivery.)


  2. Hi!!!! I will work on a post with a couple ideas and post it ASAP. YAY for being due in 2 weeks!!!!


  3. I love this! I have to try it this summer!
