Way OT: Sushi


Synthoid

Recommended Posts

I recently received a gift certificate from a highly rated Japanese sushi restaurant. I've only been "experimenting" with sushi for a few years and don't know much. I'd like to expand my horizons. So far, I haven't met any sushi I didn't like. :)

 

Any recommendations?

I would ask the Itamae (sushi chef). Some of the best sushi I have had was the result of talking with the chef while sitting at the sushi bar. Also, different localities may have different specialties.

Nice to see some sushi talk on here, just after having a sushi dinner with the wife last night to celebrate her concert with the local symphony, which I attended. (She's in the violin section).

 

Stravinsky followed by Raw Fish... a nice combination. :)

Have you tried raw sea urchin?

Personally, I don't eat anything that secretes.... :sick:

It's funny. I was being sarcastic when I recommended it. I had one once in a sushi bar 30 years ago and it was the worst thing I have ever put in my mouth. I love seafood and this is the only thing that came from the sea that I have ever disliked. I have heard so many otherwise sane people since tell me what a delicacy it is that I'm starting to wonder if I might have gotten a bad one that day... It tasted the way a bad oyster smells.

Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

"One-third of the fish purchased in restaurants, supermarkets and sushi counters was mislabeled, the non-profit group Oceana said in a report out today."

 

I like seafood and sushi in particular, but this bothers the hell out of me.

The best I've eaten was at Shiro in Seattle. Sat at the bar and had "omakase," where the chef hands you pieces until you tell him to stop. The extent of his English was "No soy sauce!" At one point he showed us two large live prawns and with moments presented them to us fried. An outstanding experience and exceptionally fresh fish. There was nothing we didn't like. Go to a good place as close to an ocean as possible and trust the chef.

That is my problem, too. I would let the chef decide.

About raw sea urchin, i remember eating them not in a sushi restaurant,

but in an Italian beach, in Sardegna, just coming out of the water :->

 

And sea urchin spaghetti are not too bad, but a bit difficult to find (especially

in sushi restaurants :).

No doubt, it was bad. There should not be any fish smell for quality sushi. This is especially true for tuna, salmon, yellow tail, etc. If there is, do not eat it... leave and never come back. Check Yelp or other food rating sites to find the best places. The first 30 years of my life, I would never try sushi since it was raw fish (Yuk!). However, once you have had good sushi you will like it and its a healthy alternative.

OT from the OT: This thread remnds me of an episode of TV's "1000 Ways To Die". A Japanese man was attempting to show his son-in-law-to-be how to be a "man" by eating not just raw eel, but live eel. Well the eel had the last laugh by devouring the "man's" intestines killing him in less than 24 hours! UGH! :wacko::wacko:

Unagi (roasted fresh water eel). Very tasty and popular.
