Arguably the most well known way to eat raw fish, sushi is a vast and delicious form of seafood. It’s a form of cooking that is 90% prep and can expose any weaknesses in your ingredients. But don't let this scare you. Maki (sushi roll) and Nigiri (fish on top of rice) are two great styles of sushi that anyone can do at home with the right tools and a little practice. But without premium sashimi grade fish there is no point. Make sure you source from a trusted fisherman. Next, learn how to make a zu (rice seasoning) and take meticulous notes on the cooking of your rice. With your favorite accompaniments like avocado or sesame seeds, your journey to itamae has begun.
