Spicy! Wow! I'm not a fan! How about shrimps or crabs?

Then do a shrimp tempura handroll like KElf suggested but serve it with kabayaki sauce instead of shoyu/wasabi(kabayaki is the sweet teriyaki style sauce that is served with unagi...you can buy it pre-made and bottled in the store). You can roll it with pea shoots, radish sprouts, etc. to give it a fresh flavor with added texture.

Yep, just leave off the spicy sauce - it doesn't really require any sauce on it?

ironchef - I wish I could find the sauce they serve with the unagi - I haven't found it here though!!!

Mary, when I mentioned the shrimp tempura that is just lightly battered and deep-fried - no sauce required - you can always use the imitation crab sticks.

One thing - when it comes to cooking - if you don't like spicy then you don't have to do it!!!!! Just work around it.

I recently had a chilli squid roll, was delicious, wasn't tempura though. Although they did over cook the squid a little, it was just a bit rubbery.

Haggis - I find squid to be chewy anyway - kind of like taking a bite out of the cartlidge part of an ear (eeeeeeeek) I have found that if put in a toaster oven (that's the way they do it at the restaurant) - it's either on broil or a very high heat, it gets the edges browned a bit and is much more tender and has a better flavor - kind of like a cooked ear (did I really say that?) Next time ask them if they will do this to the squid - I think you will see a difference.

This is all that Mike Tyson eats whenever he frequents a sushi bar.
