    I've been invited by friends to go have sushi. It's a culinary frontier for me and I'm a little skeptical. I'm interested to hear y'all's thoughts on it before I leave home.

    Tuna is always a good choice for sushi IMO, a pbj sounds like a good back up! Enjoy!

    Yeah, Dale. How many times we gotta tell ya that sushi is good??! Tuna is my favorite, hands down. I can, and almost do, eat my weight in ahi tuna poke. I draw the line at anything "rubbery" like calimari / squid. Ick. That IS bait.

    I 'spect you'll be surprised by how good fresh sushi can be, if you give it a chance.

    edit. And if it's on the menu, try edamame as an appetizer. I LOVE it, and have it for lunch at least 3 times a week.

    Baby Duck - HAHA; haven't heard that in a while...

    I'm not eating raw fish. It'll give you worms.

    Yey yey, you've said that forever. I've been eating sushi for quite a while, and my vet still says I'm clean. Besides, the sushi where you live is likely some of the best in the world. Give it a try, sissy.

    If you totally flake out, get a California Roll. No fish, just veg. But if you wimp out, you have to confess tomorrow...

    I was tricked into eating raw fish once in Hilo. It was ahi I later found out. We towed a barge from Honolulu to Hilo and went to town for some adult beverages. One of the guys ordered puu puus. It was kinda dark in there and I didn't know what I'd got 'til I put it in my mouth. Couldn't spit it out fast enough. Yuck. Cat food.

    Why'd you agree to go if you've already decided you won't like it?

    For me, a meal with friends is about more than the food. It's companionship, too. Not all sushi has raw fish in it and I'm quite willing to try some that doesn't.

    Our local sushi joint has the menu divided into raw and cooked rolls so you have lots of choices. If you like shrimp try a roll with tempura shrimp in it - the little bit of crunch the tempura adds is texturally interesting. Try the eel also - wonderfully complex flavors (and it's cooked).

    yellowtail. tuna depends which one. bluefin is over fished. Always liked raw fish. from sardines marinated in lemon to eating fresh sea urchins on the beach. that was before sushi.

    anyway, oysters and clams have always been raw and actually alive most likely while ingested.

    I like eel of the cooked ones. I do not like mackerel.

    undercooked chicken probably is more unhealthy.

    you can get E. coli from organig vegetables. and tapeworms too.

    Anyway i like my steak / burgers rare. and i love tartare and carpaccio,

    I will eat almost anything including raw sushi. Can't say I liked all of it. Personally I would put the pbj higher on my list than the raw fish but I'll eat raw fish (with or without worms) before I'll eat liver. I do have to agree with Stefano about the oysters and sea urchins... both very yummy especially right from the rocks.
    My suggestion ... enjoy the companionship and eat a California roll.

    I never was inmpressed by uni sishi rolls. I ate sea urchins that i took from the sea. basically you eat the roe, so only the females and in a restaurant it never tasted the same. anyway for a first time I would go for salmon, yellowtail, maybe salmon
