Growing up, I had heard about and read about sushi. I wasn’t sure what to think about it, being from a place where they pride themselves on their cooked seafood, but I was willing to try it. I remember going to my first sushi restaurant for lunch while I was living in California. There were a lot of sushi and a few teriyaki options. I had roe, tuna and eel and I really liked them and the pickled ginger and wasabi that I had as condiments. I’ve been a sushi fan ever since (although I don’t get sushi with chipotle on it). In the years between then and now, sushi has become quite ubiquitous, but I still enjoy it.
