Any sushi fans here?

If so, what are your favorite types? Do prefer nigiri to nori-maki or like both equally? What do you like for fillings? Do you like your fish raw or steer clear of raw in favor of cooked ones? Do you eat sashimi? Just curious.

I love sushi, but have a bad throat and gag reflex so there are only a few kinds I can eat. I love dynamite and california rolls, and tuna and salmon maki. I mainly go for a vegetarian combo at our favourite sushi place with avacado, asparagus and cucumber rolls and an order of tempura.

LOVE it!!!!!!!!! Addicted, I think. LP, see if they can cut the rolls into smaller rounds. Most places will do it. I know those big pieces can be hard for some people to eat. I had to talk a friend through chewing a piece - she was about to hurl and I literally had to whisper in her ear telling her to breath, go slowly, it will be gone soon..........whew! It was close too!

My favorite maki rolls involve raw fish. Tuna and salmon are my favorite along with snapper and white tuna. Eel is good too. When we make it at home my favorite roll is a bit of cream cheese, cucumber, salmon, tuna, and fresh cilantro. HEAVEN!

Love flying fish row in them or masago. I had some wasabi masago here at the house...it was pretty good. Not really hot, but had a flavor of wasabi.

I want some now...thanks!

I love sushi, and I eat all kinds. I usually have sushi at least once a month...

Smaller rolls or little nigiri might work. And it might be gauche, but when no one is looking you could cut the peices in half! Just don't let anyone catch you!

I don't care for much in the sushi line. My son's boss does what he calls a catepillar roll. It's a California roll with sliced avacado layered on top. It is really good and I could eat my fill of them.

I am addicted to sushi. I prefer nigiri over maki, but love both (love sashimi too). I much prefer raw over cooked, but I love cooked too. If I had to pick a last meal it would be sushi.

Oh, I love the caterpillar roll. We had it when we did a girl's night out for my best friend's birthday! That one I can eat!

Do you guys (and gals) like making sushi at home? I haven't been doing it for all that long but find it to be a lot of fun. It's cool experimenting with various fillings and toppings.
