Sushi anyone?


Recommended Posts

Tried it for the first time in Seattle, early 80's. Guess ya could say it was love at first bite.

Rarely because the first Japanese is 45 km from home, but if he would live in my garden I would give him a daily visit [biggrin]

I must say that your fortune cookies seems to be a lot more fun that the ones they serve over here:-"

As much as possible. Super white tuna sashimi is like nothing else. Could eat it all day with glasses of dry, crisp Asahi super dry.

Mom is Japanese so I grew up on homemade sushi and udon noodles. Nothing like Mom's home cooking...ever.

 

I agree that white tuna is one of the proofs of the existence of a benevolent deity who wants us to be happy!

My favorite sushi pieces would have to be salmon, eel and mackerel and I like prefer my Sake cold, served in small bamboo cups, of course.

 

Miso soup also rocks!

Went to Yanagi's for my birthday Sunday evening.

It was great. The entire family.

We also did the Taipan grill.

That was real entertaining.

Our grill chef, was hilarious.

While making the fried rice for our meals he would take the spatula and flick a pea at my kids.

Then he would say, "Ha! Pea on you."

It was great and the sushi was very fresh and tasty as was the grilled Tuna, Calamari, Salmon, Shrimp and New York Steak we ate for the main course.

Sushi[biggrin]

It's great, and Sake is pretty darn good too. I learned something a long time ago though, never eat sushi from a cheap Chinese buffet - death seems like such a sweet release after that.

Yeah, some people have had bad experiences with it, I mean after all, it's raw fish and like oysters, sometimes you just get a bad batch but don't give up. Once you sit down to a fine spread, you'll definitely come back for more.

I'm a fan, but I'm not super into the raw fish thing. -The texture weirds me out. I usually go for a vegetarian option.

Depending on where, I've enjoyed sushi...

 

Not much of it around here, though. <grin>

 

OTOH, on one trip to Korea the sushi was unquestionably super-fresh. How'd I know? You don't wanna ask.

 

BTW, freshwater fish do not make for safe "sushi." Because of parasites, etc., etc., they need to be cooked, even the best trout or walleye.

Very common misconception:

Sushi= vinegar+rice. Not all sushi has raw, or even cooked fish in it; all sushi has vinegar and rice. Sashimi is just raw fish no rice.

Good call.

 

I like a chunk of fresh-caught blue-fin or big-eye tuna (with the fishing rod in one hand, standing on the deck of the boat) with a dot of wasabi. The texture seems to me to be more like smooth peanut butter than anything else. Nothing weird about it all.

 

Other than that, I don't partake.

If it was anything like the plates we had on my trip to Korea, the pieces were still moving and in some cases flashing rainbow colors. Still, cephalopods make some tasty sashimi.

Thanks, I was just referring to the stuff that had raw fish in it.
