Anyone like sushi or sushi rolls? I really love it and wonder what it will be like finding it when we go full time. Some parts of the country will be obvious locations for it - others not so obvious. Have you found any great places that surprised you? Tonight it was red snapper and yellow tail belly sushi and a spicy salmon and golden California roll with jalapeņo.

We are Sushi lovers also. You will find Sushi in most communities of 50k population these days. I have elated sushi in Alabama, Tennessee and North Carolina to name a few. Much of it remarkably good.

Just don't go to any sushi restaurant that also does business as a bait shop.

Now that's good news. Have several friends there and plan to spend time visiting them and the entire Land of Enchantment.

Went to a place in Yucaipa California with my sister and her kids, It was called Tuna Time and I was skeptical but it was fantastic. My sister had never had Sushimi which I ordered so I gave her some of mine. On the way out she said 'wow the raw fish was great'. I said"when you eat raw fish you have to wait a few hours to know of it was really great" It was.

My DW and I tried it for the first time in October, and now I can't get enough. Never thought I'd even find any I liked. Now I eat it every chance I get!

The best sushi I've had, I've made myself.
Also the best sunomono salad
Love putting cream cheese in with the salmon rolls.

Nori (seaweed) is easily obtained in the supermarket international foods section. Sushi rice is a must - with just a little rice vinegar added.
You can buy a bamboo mat which makes rolling them easier.

For California rolls, I use a piece of plastic wrap over the bamboo mat, place the rice on it, then put the nori on top, then the fillings on the nori to make inside-out rolls. Must sprinkle generously with toasted sesame seeds.

If you have an imagination, you can make any rolls you like - Hawaiian rolls have pineapple in them - nice finishing roll.

Once you make your own, for about a quarter of the cost, you will make them often. They are never as good the next day, so best to eat them all after making them.

Steve my friend, you surprise me. Eating raw fish - wow.

I love it! We have a place about 10 miles up the road called Masa Sushi and I'm always getting the DW to stop there when I can.

Now I must say that besides Sushi I love Sashimi. You do know the difference, right.

We spent 3 years in Japan. Now I'd like to tell you a story.

First night out looking for a place to eat, so to set the scenario. Every Japanese restaurant has a mock-up display of the dishes they serve. They are real life replica presentations, in plastic, of what the food plate looks like. We both settled on Tempura Teishoku. It is a Japanese battered shrimp, battered vegetables and sushi. We ordered. Shortly out came the dishes. Sitting in the middle of the dish was a carrot slice that was scalloped around the edges, and in the middle was this "green" substance about the size of a fingernail, but not a fingernail trust me. The following sort conversation between me and DW ensued.

Me: (pointing to carrot with green substance), "What is this?"
DW: "How would I know dummy, i've been in this country as long as you have."
(Not one of my favorite conversations.)
Me: "Well, it must be edible since it's on the plate."

Using my adept chopsticks I picked up the whole carrot slice, green stuff and all, and popped it into my mouth.

Little did I know what "Wasabi" is. Especially "True Wasabi" For those who don't know, It is pure unadulterated Japanese Horseradish. Although not a capsaicin I can tell you this; I didn't have sinus problems for over a month.

The only thing available to stop the sensation was beer, and I had to rather quickly. My wife was laughing and she was telling the Japanese server in sign language what I had done, and the server is standing there wide eyed with her hand over her mouth in one of those "Oh my gosh, you didn't"

Yes I did!

Come on down Steve, we'll have a Wasabi eating contest - and ginger root.

Oishi desu!
おいしいですね。

Love sushi, but not always easy to find good quality on cross country travels. Better options on the coast in general.

That said Whole Foods always has pretty good sushi just about anywhere, as do some of the other high end grocery stores (Market of Choice comes to mind in OR). And then of course making your own if you can find good fish.

If there is a sushi restaurant in town I check reviews and then call them to ask which day they have their fish delivered. It's always best when it's fresh.

Costco sushi has never done it for me. I buy many things there, but never the sushi.
