In my past life of eating everything, I loved eating sushi. All kinds of sushi. Well, except Uni. Never have liked it.
But, I could and would eat two or three rolls or consume chirshi don (10 different pieces of sashimi on rice) with miso soup and maybe even a seaweed salad. Way too much food.
Since my sleeve surgery, I have had sashimi but really no more than 4-5 ounces at a time. I have missed the combination of flavors that traditional sushi rolls have. I have been talking about eating sushi with a co-worker who has lots of dislikes when it comes to textures and food. She really doesn’t like a lot of fish either. So sushi?
Well, all of the talk of what kind of fish to try (if any – hello steak!), made me want some sushi again.
After talking with my long time sushi chef and friend about my cravings, he served me this:
Oh my! My taste buds were extremely happy, and so was my tummy. It brought back the roll flavors I had been missing without any of the rice (yes, the tempura breading is a no-no, but in the grand scheme of things – not so bad).
So thankful. And, yes I will be having it again – maybe next time with ahi tuna.
