In case you haven’t figured it out yet, I love… no… adore sushi. I am as my readers know a Pescaterian, and when you think of a nice big juicy steak dinner I’m thinking about sushi, o yes, a nice raw plank of fish nesstled between some goodies, hugged with sea weed and rice, yes that is perfection. At least to me it is.

WIKI DEFINITION: Pescetarianism, also called pesco-vegetarianism, is the practice of a diet that includes seafood and excludes mammals and birds. In addition to fish or shellfish, a pescetarian diet typically includes some or all of vegetables, fruit, nuts, grains, beans, eggs, and dairy. The Merriam-Webster dictionary dates the origin of the term “pescetarian” to 1993 and defines it to mean: “one whose diet includes fish but no meat”

Occasionally I will make sushi at home for my hubby and I along with some yummy home made miso soup, or with friends for a fun lunch get together! I’m not talking about my candy sushi either lol, it is surprisingly easy to make, and sometimes we follow recipes, sometimes we just put together whatever we think sounds good.

A few pics from Sushi made with my friend Nicole a wile back… I should take pictures next time we make sushi again!

Here is a neat video on a quick and easy sushi roll for beginners at sushi-guide.co.uk

I don’t always make my own sushi though, hubby and I love going out to sushi bars and occasionally having it delivered. When we found a place that delivered sushi (good quality) we went nuts but we enjoy the atmosphere of sushi bars and a warm Saki to go along with it!

So, if you decide to venture away from the norm everyday boring food and try some sushi there’s a few things you should know! I found a picture showing you sushi etiquette on www.mikebob.com and thought it was awesome!

I miss sushi being more available though, here in Kentucky/Tennessee it isn’t the most popular so we have an option of 3 places to go to for sushi where I don’t fear placing a piece in my mouth and wondering if I’ll be headed to a mini vacation confined to my bathroom praying to the porcelain gods. That’s another thing, if your going to do REAL raw sushi make sure you know the place is safe! I’ve done the whole cheap sushi/food poisoning and it isn’t fun. As with any food you run the risk of getting sick but if it is handled by someone who knows what they’re doing you should be fine. I myself, even eating in some shady places because I just HAD to have sushi have only gotten sick once from it!

Go try some!
