Default Sushi at home

<SPAN id=_ctl1_ctlTopic_ctlPanelBar_ctlTopicsRepeater__c tl1_lblFullMessage>This is probably a retarded question, but is it safe to use yellowfin bought from a market to make sushi at home? I have always just used tuna we have caught....I know where it has been &amp; how it was handled. And if any markets (anywhere from PanamaCity to Destin)have better tuna than others please let me know.



What are some of everyone's favorite homemade rolls to make?

Yellow fin tuna is your choice tuna for making sushi. What you need to do is to call all the seafood markets and ask for Sushi or Sashimi grade tuna. This is tuna thats right off the boat. All tuna is graded in the same fashion like beef. You have grade a, prime, all that stuff. In america we grade tuna by number #1, #2, #3 and so on #1 being your best choice. But what you want to ask for is Sushi grade tuna. You can also call some of the sushi restaurants in the area and find out where they get there tuna from.

Yellow fin is the majority of the tuna that is put into sushi. Now in other countrys and in very high class ungodly expensive restaurants they will sale bluefin sashimi, but your main stay is yellowfin. I have used black fin and it was fine, and I have used bluefin(expensive but good). Just the biggest thing you need to ask for is to ask for SUSHI / SASHIMI and or #1 GRADE TUNA. That fish was still kicking 12-24 hours before you get it.
