Sushi, for Fun and Health

Sushi, for Fun and Health


Sushi. It's not just raw fish. Sushi, a seasoned rice treat from Japan, combines rice, rice wine vinegar, salt, sugar, and other healthy additions into an easy to eat package.

A key component of many sushi is the raw fish, or sashimi, which has to be top quality, and at the peak of it's freshness.

Some sushi however contains no raw components, but cooked crab, shrimp, egg or raw vegitables such as carrot, cuccumber and avacodo.

Sushi is usually a low fat, high Omega-3 food, and often a great source of protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals.

Pauls mom used to make the best homemade Sushi. I have to admit that when I was a kid I thought that Sushi was just going to be a slab of raw fish.

I did too. I tend to stick with the basic California roll (rice, fake crab, cuke and avocado) and variants using shrimp and real crab. I've tried eel, shark, tuna and salmon. Didn't really care for them.

While I was at the FBINA over the summer, a fellow student was a Japanese LEO. On international night he had a stand with sake and Sushi. The slabs of raw fish type. I had a few and enjoyed it, of course the sake helped.

I had some sake at a place in Toronto, was quite good. Unfortunately I haven't found any that didn't taste like rubbing alcohol in NY. LOL!
