I don't want to go outside the box with things I am not familiar with like sea urchin or eel or octopus.


Well if you don't want to go outside the box, its hard to try new things. The whole point of sushi is to experience great tastes beyond the box.

Enough of my lecture. Get Eel. Its delicious.

Here is another vote for eel. It is delicious. Other than that, have the sushi chef make you whatever he feels is the best that day. Tell him things you absolutely won't eat, but put yourself in his hands and you just may be treated to some things you otherwise never would have had.

I'd ask if they had a sample plate... try a little of everything.

lefse, i can uderstand your aversion to scallops. i really don't like "sea fat" either. but as sushi, it's delicioso. elfie is dead on, it's nice and sweet.

and really give yellowtail and white tuna a go. you won't be disappointed.

another one, salmon skin, is just crisped salmon skin, just like you fried up a pice of salmon. try it in a roll or hand roll.

y'all are killin me here.
gad, all this talk about something I've been afraid of all my scuba diving days.
next you'll tell me to try shark, NOPE!
I know, outside the box is more fun, and I also know I'm boring {NOT} but I hate to send something back or complain cause it'd be my fault. The guy that usually waits on me is wonderful and patient with this novice. I'll leave it up to him and his chef behind the very tiny counter, in full view of my eyes. if he takes something out of the frig that screams scary, I'll scream and run outta there.
y'all think I'm kidding but I'm taking my laptop in there and he and I will figure out by your suggestions and his brilliance too. he knows I'm a light weight.
I'll get brave, I promise. then I'll report back.
heck, he may even have a butter dish for me behind that counter of his...

Shark is good too, cook it like a steak.

And Im not lettin ya get all scared on me, I took my 83 year old grandpa out for sushi the other day and he LOVED it. We're talkin about a big ol' irishman very set in his ways. He was still raving about it to this day, calling it "quite a treat". Its worth trying new foods, it really is. Theres no shame in not liking it after you try it, but sheesh, give it a chance.

Good luck on your adventure!

y'all have me convinced to try the scallops, so I will. and I do adore caviar and if you say to try the flying fish roe, I suppose I could try it too. you say it pops in your mouth, is it tiny little itty bitty balls or salmon roe sized?

Iron Chef put up a photo of spicy "caviar" the other day (that's the title of the thread). That will give you the quickest pic around.

Teriyaki shark is yummy with noodles. Shark is served as part of fish and chips pretty regularly around here. Cooks easily too.

Flying Fish roe are itty bitty and has more crunch versus pop.
