if i had to go with cooked fish for sushi, it would be shrimp, eel, and/or crab.

but if i had my choice, it would be raw - yellowtail, otoro tuna, mackerel (but it has to be super fresh), octopus, and red clam.

you'd be surprised at how it tastes.

if i served you a small slice and didn't tell you what it was, i'll bet you'd like it. very mild, slightly sweet taste - firm texture; no fish taste or gushy texture anywhere about.

it's good marinated and grilled, too!

Love octopus. They are delicious if not overcooked, otherwise they taste like a Bandaid.

They are so smart, and I feel so guilty anytime I eat some. Fondly remembering Paul, the octopus who predicted all the World Cup winners, then died shortly afterward. There is a memorial to him at his aquarium in Germany. He actually got death threats!

It is such a treat to see them when we go snorkeling. Beautiful creatures!

i heard he ended up as "tako-su".

lol, j/k.

kathleen, you have to have makerel caught and frozen, then defrosted and served a.s.a.p.. otherwise, it's too strong. but fresh, it's delicious.

He's right, PF. You would like it, I think. It is wonderful grilled too.

I'd likely try it again but I've had it several times in several ways. The only other sea creature I've not enjoyed was sea urchin...which seemed to taste like vinyl smells.

I'm sure, just don't tell me... There's some things I just can't wrap my mind around. I won't eat snake on purpose, either.

I've tried uni (sea urchin gonads), twice. The first time, I thought; "this must be bad"......the second time, I gave up and thought it's just something my taste-buds won't ever like. Bitter and nasty! I've always heard that you either love uni or hate it.

Uni (oo-nee) is the Japanese name for the edible part of the Sea Urchin. While colloquially referred to as the roe (eggs), uni is actually the animal's gonads (which produce the milt or roe).

dashi, mirin, recipe, rice, rice vinegar, seaweed, wasabi

Need Help with Sushi Yesterday, I decided that I wanted to learn to make Sushi and eat a lot of it. Especially if I can make it low sodium. Today I bought: [LIST] [*]sushi rice [*]nori [*]kumbo [*]bonita flakes [*]mirin [*]plum vinegar [*]shitake/shoyu concentrate [*]pickled ginger [/LIST]I have on hand: [LIST] [*]lots of soy sauce, shoyu, tamari [*]sesame oil [*]many spices [*]sesame seeds [*]canned tuna (Albacore) and canned Sockeye Salmon [*]Yellow Rockfish (?) and Cod, usually have tilapia on hand, too [/LIST]Veggies, I am ready and willing to use any and all veggies. Most have to be close to pureed for me to be able to eat them and I do have problems with most fresh vegetables. I plan on using many types of fish and, even though it is not traditional, chicken...haven't quite figured out how to incorporate pork...yet.:smile: I will not be using raw fish of any kind. Any help with ideas would be appreciated and I would like the recipe for Dashi, again. I thought I had copied and pasted it, if I did, I hid it from myself really well. Thank You 3 stars 1 reviews
