I enjoy fish, whether taking care of them or eating a pound and a half of salmon. Now, since I've had a bamboo shrimp and I know that they are farm raised as a food source...I sometimes hesitate before eating shrimp (only for a second though!).

What is "nigrii" sushi? I know what nigrii is (onigirii is seaweed). I just have never heard of eating only the rice and seaweed....I am going to guess that you mean maki sushi (rolled sushi)?

The word "sushi" refers to the vinegared rice that is in whatever you are eating.

The most common forms are: Nigiri-Sushi (hand shaped sushi), Oshi-Sushi (pressed sushi), Maki-Sushi (rolled sushi) and Chirashi-sushi (scattered sushi).

Nigiri is a slice of whatever you are having on a hand shaped ball of rice (usually oblong) with a minute amount of wasabi in between. A good Itamae-San (sushi chef) will put the exact amount of wasabi on so that's it is not too much, but enough that is brings out the flavor of the fish.

Sashimi is good every now and then too. It's basically nigiri sushi without the sushi (remember that sushi by itself is vinegared rice).

I found a pic of some nigiri-sushi. Tuna, I believe.

I usually don't eat maki-sushi and I rarely eat fresh water fish raw as they are more likely to have parasites (although a good Itamae-San will spot them and not serve the fish).

Don't forget Squooshy Sushi, Mooshy Sushi and Gooshy Sushi.

PS how do you know so much about sushi, deli.. do you own a deli or what


I can't look at nori anymore without thinking of yellow tangs anyway.

Thanks for clearing that up, deli_conker! Now when my husband gets home he will be impressed - he generally has it most days for lunch and has grown weary of explaining the differences to me. He likes the fish inside some kind of extremely thin paper wrap - possibly made of soy?

Is the thin paper green? If so then it is seaweed which means he's having Maki-sushi. If it is brown-ish, then it may be Inari-sushi which is fried tofu (soy bean curd). But IME, that usually isn't very thin. It usually looks like a dumpling or something.

No deli here. The name has it's own story. I learned about sushi by trying to learn Japanese. Lots of Japanese is spoken at authentic sushi bars so it gives exposure to the language and a chance to practice a little here and there with somebody who is fluent in the language. Not to mention the fact that I usually get better service when they see I am at least trying to learn their native tounge.

Very cool deli! And a difficult language to learn, to boot.

I like to order stuff from jlist.com where they have a representative in Japan that hangs out and sends out newsletters of what his family is doing there.

I order weird stuff like pocky sticks, snapping cotton candy gum, xylish caffiene gum and whatnot from jlist that gets sent right from japan. Have not ordered any fish things yet.

Yum, I could use a coupla little sushis right now.

I don't have a problem eating fish, I like the mild tasting ones like mahi mahi, grouper, snapper. What I can't do is order lobster from a place that has them crawling around live in a tank, and you pick one out. No way. I don't want to meet my food before I eat it. 8O

I eat beef and chicken, and that's a lot worse because of the conditions they're raised in. I tried going vegetarian a couple times but got bored and started to crave hamburgers after a while.
