My answer to this question is MANY things. Fried chicken livers to name one...tasted one and now love them! Sushi was difficult because I didn't like the taste of the nori. No matter what the roll was I couldn't get past tasting ocean water. One day that switch flipped and unless the nori is on the outside I don't really taste it. GG - I'm with you there - put my nori on the inside!

I erased my whole dissertation on sushi I love the stuff!

i agree with your brussels sprouts, tex. extra petite ones taste tolerable, though.
i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink

Actually, I had tried it about 25 years ago, but was a sushi newbie at the time. Was put off by it (maybe wasn't the freshest?). Never tried it again until a couple of years ago.

It is now my favorite sushi. Buttery, briny, essence of the sea. Too bad it is so expensive.
