This is alarmingly off topic, but it means a lot to me by Helen on 16 September 2004 10:02pm
 
There is a new sushi restaurant 20 minutes up the road from me. This means-- no more driving an hour or more to get my salmon rolls.

This kicks ass in a brutal way. it rules with a unique savagery.

woo-hoo.

20 minutes, Helen? Won`t it be cold by the time you get it home?

can you eat your sushi in the resturant ? i would imagine raw fish can;t get cold as it was'nt hot to begin with !
i once had some sushi form marks and spencer and on the back of the packet it said contains no raw fish emmmmmmm is'nt that what sushi is meant to be i think they meant all the fish they used was cooked :0)
cheers

Linda, some sushi can have cooked fish, especially if it comes ready made from a market. If the fish isn't ultra super fresh-- still flapping--- you can get deathly ill from it. A good sushi restaurant orders fish daily--- a market may not do that. if fish sits for a day or so, you should cook it. Bacteria multiplies quickly.
Tip: Fresh fish does not smell "fishy."
It should smell clean and slighty salty--but not fishy. The flesh should be springy and moist. It should not be mushy.
(damn I am getting hungry)
Sushi should be served at room temp or slightly chilled for best taste. And eat all of it--no leftovers.

be sure to eat a slice of pickled ginger between samplings of different rolls. It clears the palate.

And mix the wasabi in your soy sauce-- to taste. Depends on your heat tolerance.

This concludes our sushi lecture for the day.

Thank you.

...it's the green stuff. Use sparingly.

don;t talk to me about wasabi . the first time i ever ate sushi was when my cousin took us to a very posh hotel for easter lunch last year . i did'nt have a clue what the small blob of green stuff on the plate was . i used it all on one sushi roll . boy my lips and mouth were on fire and killing me . i drank a pint of rock shandy in one go . btw for those of you who are not irish rock shandy is a lush drink when you get a bottle of fanta orange and a bottle of fanta lemon ( or what ever the brand name you happen to have to hand . you can have club orange and club lemon in ireland !) in the same glass over heaps of ice ! for some reason this is not a drink thats heard of outside ireland !
cheers
