I definitely go for the rolls and not the sashimi, but I tend to get the specialty rolls where I go. I like rolls that have fruit in them a lot (I had a delicious one with spicy tuna and mango!). I also really like rolls that have shrimp tempura in them. Yum!
I don't like raw but I do order california rolls, spicy tuna rolls, spider rolls and things of that nature.....my husband likes it all so he always tries something new as well as his favorite stand-bys.
First just to qualify the terms Sushi simply means "with rice" and "sashimi" means raw fish. I love both but unless I am in a place that I really, really trust I am quite cautious give the nasty complications that can come from bad sashimi. If I am not in a place I can fully trust I stick to things that have been frozen and mostly with pelagic fishes, which are far less prone to parasites.
I like all sorts but am vegetarian so don't eat any fish or meat types. I like hosomaki best with cucumber or carrot. I didn't like it much when I first tried it but now eat loads and often make my own.
I've never had it, and probably never will. I'm a vegetarian in the first place, so there seems to be nothing for me on a sushi menu....and...I've never been that crazy about fish, anyway. The very idea of eating it raw positively nauseates me.
My husband doesn't like it/won't eat it, either. He calls it "bait," and says, "I use that to catch REAL fish." LOL
Nauseating; that's exactly the word I would describe most vegetarian dishes I have encountered, especially now that I'm pregnant. My daughter is vegan, so I help her with her dishes, but my husband finds that food totally unappealing.
I do not order the ones with raw fish. I will get the California roll (I prefer it spicy). I also like a lot of the veggie filled rolls including: sweet potato rolls, pickle rolls, peanut and avocado rolls. There are a few specialty rolls that I like that I would have to have the menus to describe. They vary from place to place. Remember they always have some veggie options and you can always get rice on the side to fill up more. I just started eating sushi in the last 6 months and I now love it. I just stay away from any raw fish.
I always go with a baked roll. I think the fact that it is cooked and warm makes it taste that much better. Usually salmon, crab, creem chease, and avocado are my favorite type of ingredients. Go with the Baked Rolls!!
I like all kinds of sushi's!!Aside from salmon you could try the exotic taste of avocado, cucumber or try experimenting other vegetables or fruits iwith mayonnaise & grated ginger. I enjoy a lot making my own sushi!!
I'm new to the sushi world, but I love it. Big shockers for me were the eel (unagi?) and caviar. They are delicious.Since I'm new to it all, tell me what you thought would be NAS-TEH, but wound up being one of...
What makes a fish sushi grade?I've been grilling a lot of fish lately and serving it pink. I'm wondering if I should be cooking sushi grade salmon since it is pretty pink. What makes a salmon fit for sushi?
