Sushi at Home

May 18th, 2012 by | Published in Seafood  |  3 Comments

I love sushi, but I don’t always love to pay the premium price that we often see in Japanese restaurants. Luckily they sell sashimi-grade fish at grocery stores such as Berkeley Bowl, and for $14, you can get a whole freaking pound of ahi tuna! And even less for a pound of salmon! I don’t think you understand how much fish you get for a pound…I certainly didn’t. We had way too much fish and leftover sashimi is not the best.

I made tuna poke with the ahi tuna, but I used a tuna poke mix, which ended up being way too salty. Next time, I will try this recipe for tuna poke.

Give it a try! Sushi at home!

    Ah! I love getting fresh sushi fish at Berkeley Bowl! I think I got maybe a 1/4 lb of tuna last time, but we were making rolls. I love that they also have tobiko and all the other goodies you need.

    How do you cut your tuna? I’m always wary of digging in without creating freshly cut edges.. what did you do?

    Hi Cheryl!
    Sorry it took so long to get back to you.
    I think the most important thing is having an extremely sharp knife and using a gradual sawing motion, but of course there is a whole art of proper sushi-cutting, which I am not qualified to tell you about.
    Try to figure out where the grain of the muscle is and cut against it. Good luck!
