Not All Sushi is Raw

Haven’t tried sushi yet?

Maybe it’s your first time at a sushi restaurant in Seattle and you’re skeptical about eating raw fish. Or, you just avoid sushi in general. Do not fear. I Love Sushi has plenty of cooked options for you to start off with. One of the more popular cooked sushi is the California Roll, which is avocado, cucumber, and imitation crab meat (“kamaboko” or “surimi”) wrapped in rice. That doesn’t sound too bad right?

Next is our sweet and savory eel (“unagi” or “anago”) always comes cooked, as well as most clam sushi. Octopus (“tako”), squid (“ika”), and shrimp (“ebi”) often come grilled, although not always! Some dishes like “sweet shrimp” are uncooked, but don’t be afraid to branch out; the raw fish used in sushi is always frozen beforehand as a way to kill bacteria and parasites.
