I’m a sushi addict, but I have a friend who has never had sushi and is a little nervous about trying it. I’m pretty sure she will like it once she’s had it, but the idea of raw fish has her a little freaked. I personally go for the sashimi so I’m not as well versed in the actual sushi rolls, so do any sushi lovers out there recommend starting her out on some of the cooked sushi roll options, like a spider roll, or do you think cooking the sushi takes away from a more authentic experience?
I just want to be able to give her some more classic or safer recommendations that won’t scare her away. I’ve also not had soft-shell crabs before; obviously the shell is still on, but is it so soft that you barely notice it or is it still really crunchy?
