Wow Man - That's worse than the death sentence for the poor woman!
Back to sushi - Love the stuff, but agree that it is damned expensive - here too. We make it often and sometimes one of my sons or the Grey One manages to haul in some fresh fish and we have a feast - our eldest recently popped up with a freshly caught tuna - small one with just enough meat for a feast of sushi and more than enough left for the freezer.
We hardly ever get fresh crab here and although our crayfish is the best ever, it is so expensive that one can rather use Russian caviar.
By the way, my son gave me a whole jar of French foie gras for my birthday - apart from just eating like that, any suggestions for frugal and enjoyable use?
I haven't been into my recipe books yet, but thought that thinly sliced, lightly sauted in garlic butter and with lemon juice would make a good starter?
