By the way you think I should just start out with the basic roll the California roll since that has nothing bad at all sodium wise? Then when I learn more about shushi I can start adding my own stuff too it, like red bell peppers, avocado's, sushi grade tuna? that's not smoked, cured?
Sushi tuna has been frozen down to a certain temp that kills bacteria. (talkin out my a$$ but thats what a sushi chef told me)

bigdaddy, I believe the reason for freezing has to do with killing any parasites like worms that may have infected the fish. I don't think it has anything to do with bacteria as some bacteria can do just fine in freezing temps.

This is exactly why I included the stuff in brackets.

Sushi is a mystery of the Orient! Don't question... just eat!

Sorry, I can' just eat it like that anymore.

That's why I'm learning to make it for my self.

I thought an eel roll is safe for sodium wise but it's not, I've learned how they make it.

And they salt pack it in the fridge for a few day's and the only sushi I can eat now would be the real raw fish, sushi grade fish unprepared, and fresh veggies.

I believe the raw seafood on a rice bed is called sashimi. I love sashimi!

Sushi (the art of the knife) are generally the nori wrapped rolls. Fresh sushi, from a Japanese-style sushi bar, only uses regular cooked sushi rice (prepared with vinegar and sugar) and fresh vegetables and/or seafood, without any added salt that I'm aware of. I guess it depends on the kind of seafood you order.

Actually that is called nigiri. Sashimi is just raw fish without anything else (no rice, nori, or other items).

I stand corrected, and I learned something, thank you.

Either way, both are delicious

I believe you are correct about salt not being added to sushi of any kind. Soy sauce is the component usually used in Japanese cooking when salt is needed. Since you use the soy sauce at the table you can control any additional sodium added.
