Delicious raw food that is normally not raw. Go figure. (3/7)

So we’ve been talking about raw food a lot in class and that got me thinking about sushi. Whenever I think of raw food, I personally think of sushi. In class, I was wondering about the preparation involved. {SIDE NOTE-Sushi is technically anything that contains “sushi” rice. ( aka sticky rice- to make it sticky, you prepare it with vinegar.) So raw fish by itself is not sushi; its sashimi, but only it’s thinly sliced. If not, I don’t know what they would call that.}

    If sushi must only have sushi rice, then does this mean, that there is sushi without any raw fish? (Sorry if this is a stupid question, I’ve never had sushi)

    Yeah there is. Cucumber sushi is delicious and it is only cucumbers and rice wrapped in nori. (Which is seaweed.)

    And there is no such thing as a stupid question. Stupid answers, yes. Stupid questions, no.

    I would also suggest having sushi. It is really good.

    That’s an interesing sushi-related page, but I did notice one or two very very odd things about it:
    ” For safety sake, all fish prepared for use in sushi should be either cooked to an internal temperature of 1400F or at least frozen for 3 days at –500F to kill any larva that might be present.”
    Ok, so before eating, we should either incinerate our fish (which I thought was supposed to be eaten raw?) or deep freeze it for 3 days to a point that is against the laws of nature (unless these peoeple have figured out how to acheive temperatures below absolute zero…)

    Seems kind of fishy to me.

    That’s really interesting. I normally thought of sushi as raw fish too. (Personally, though, I think of apples when we talk about raw food in class.) Even knowing that it is cooked doesn’t make me any more eager to eat it, however.
