I want to see more of this:
"I get these questions all the time -- people call me: 'Hey Yoshi, my husband went to fish a big salmon, we're looking to eat it as sashimi. We opened it and a bunch of worms came out. Can we eat it?'"
Christ on a bike.
Also very sad that there was no talk of what a fellow yelper calls, "Jive-Ass Rolls." You know what I'm talking about: those mayonnaise, teriyaki, and otherwise sauce-covered concoctions that, IMHO, exist primarily to mask dodgy fish.
My friends had a roll recommended to them at a Louisville, Kentucky sushi bar that not only had all of those jive-ass hallmarks -- tempura, hot-sauce spiked fish, teriyaki sauce, and mayo -- but also melted mozzarella cheese. Oh yeah, and it was served on fire. WTF? Run away!
I'm going to risk my Nihonjin card and say I actually like and partake of some rolls considered jive-ass. But I fight my urge for spicy tuna, spicy scallops, and crab salad all the time, unless I'm at a trusted Japanese joint. I humbly suggest you do the same. No one likes barfing, tapeworms, or crap masquerading as culinary delight that somehow manages in all its crappiness to still set you back at least a tenner.
