Sushi is flash frozen to kill bacteria and parasites. This is poor handling practices after thawing during preparation or storage.

As I ate a couple of spicy tuna rolls last week I'm getting a kick out of this.

Hmm, so there must be one sushi chef making a mad dash throughout the east coast contaminating everyone's restaurants simultaneously. Sort of like the Hamburgler of sushi.

I just assumed that's what it was. If it was the good parts, they would serve it as a solid piece of fish.

Love sushi and spicy tuna in particular. On immunosuppressants, so I wouldn't dare, but this sounds like the "pink slime" of tuna. I've never seen tuna at any local sushi place (including my grocery store) that looked like a ground product.

I never have sushi on the mainland. Been to Hawaii twice, fresh-that-day sushi and sashimi is to mainland sushi as in-n-out burgers are to mcdonalds quarter pounders.

We have Sushi regularly. It's delicious. How many people have caught Salmonella eating supposedly supposebly cooked chicken? Regardless Irregardless, we only eat at trusted Sushi restaurants.

Never eat the spicy tuna, they put the spices in because it's getting old!

/ don't know if that's true, but the feasibility of it is what always keeps me from ordering it.

When I watch the fish market employ at my local grocery store handle the sashimi grade tuna, he always wears plastic gloves. Which he wears while handling lower-grade fish.
So when I buy sashimi fish, I get the cryogenically flash frozen fish, still frozen, and defrost it just before I eat it.
I control the defrosting and opening of the sealed package, and the first thing that touches it outside that package is my fork, and then my cutting board, and then my knife.
But all I can find that way is tuna. So my question to farksperts out there:
How do you get your sashumi-grade squid, and salmon, octopus, and other quality fish?
I live in Atlanta, but what works for you elsewhere might work also here...

// Thanks!

gregscott: So when I buy sashimi fish, I get the cryogenically flash frozen fish, still frozen, and defrost it just before I eat it.


Does anyone have a reliable source on whether this is how it is made sashimi grade and how this is done? The googles have failed to give me a site better than ask yahoo or whatever. Because to be quite honest, I can flash freeze shiat at work on dry ice or liquid nitrogen. Would save me a fark load of money if I can just buy normal grade fish and flash freeze it myself, even if I had to flash freeze an entire fish. But I also don't want to die or kill my friends/family when I make it at home.

A tangential note:

A lot of people don't realize is that room-temperature rice is much more likely to give you food poisoning than many other seemingly innocuous foods. Bacillus cereus poisoning is known as "Fried Rice Syndrome" because the stuff just loves to grow on cooked rice that's sitting on a buffet table. It's not the most common pathogen involved in food poisoning, but it's the reason you need to be careful what you do with rice after you cook it. (Rice cookers always have that "keep warm" mode that maintains it at a safe temperature.)

Sushi is generally safe because of the salted vinegar, but I wouldn't be surprised if a few of the cases of sushi-borne food poisoning were due to the rice itself.

That Guy in the Dos Equis Commercials: I never have sushi on the mainland. Been to Hawaii twice, fresh-that-day sushi and sashimi is to mainland sushi as in-n-out burgers are to mcdonalds quarter pounders.


Umm, no. We have a local Tokyo transplant that makes the finest Sushi.Of course, he demands 24 hour pre-order to ensure it is made correctly.(Sushi Nazi) It's expensive, but 5 stars of deliciousness. I've traveled to Hawaii and Japan and have sampled the freshest Sushi and Sashimi. It depends on the Chef and his/her standards of excellence.

You might have an argument in the heartland where the ocean is hundreds of miles away, but I'm 45 minutes to the coast and we only eat the freshest fish. Of course, having a father that was a Fishmonger in his youth taught me what to expect.

I'd love to know what restaurants. I had spicy tuna here in Maryland at the end of March and it destroyed my digestive system.
 
2012-04-14 02:04:35 PM  
A long time ago me and a friend went to eat at a Denny's. Now when I go to these types of places, I don't wander too far from simple foods i.e. chicken tender basket or a burger. My friend sees the special is salmon and gets it. I go, 'you sure you want to get salmon?' Let's just say he regretted it.
