Just wondering if any and how many of you guys and gals might buy stuff from a local fish market or wholesaler(fresh quality) and take it home and eat it raw like sushi. I imagine the fish would have to be sashimi grade.
Wondering because I love salmon so much and going to sushi places will cost me $1 a piece on happy hour specials..(which i eat 40-60 pieces of salmon alone). Normal price would be double that. 2 pieces for 3.95.
Looking for more economical ways to eat my raw fish.:beerbang:

I've never bought it and made my own, but I have caught tuna and made my own sashimi, I think the fish can be only 4 days old at the maximuim for you to eat it raw and you can't eat it raw if its been frozen

i buy it from a local grocery store. make sure it is sashimi grade and is flash frozen to kill any bacteria. u will definitely save some dough

Find an all you can eat sushi place for 20$..

But I know what you mean.. Sushi is awesome bodybuilder food, but going out one night to eat it gets super expensive

I do, but I buy the sashimi grade, a little more expensive but well worth it...

Always buy the sashimi grade for tuna . Also, the place you buy from should not have a overpowering "fishy" odor. If you smell bleach, leave asap.:cool:

My soft spot is for salmon. I dont like it that much when cooked, but raw...I fucking love it.

Ya I have a sushi buffet or two in the DC area....but thats it. Not many and they are alright...not great.

Have you ever tried yellow tail or scallops...OMG fucking amazing brother!!! Salmon is pretty damn good to. But like you said one dinner with a significant other and the check is as much as a weeks worth of groceries.

Ya, it fucking sucks. Sometimes I wish I could just go in and talk to the owner and be like "Look....can I just eat as much salmon as I want for a flat and fair fee? Ill pay alacarte for the random rolls, tuna and eel. " LOL

Sometimes my mind weeps at the fact that it is inevitable they throw out plenty of fish they didnt sell in time. If I was only called the night before to help finish it off for free or cheap. Ah, fantasies.

i have done it. i bought salmon and krab(fake crab) and made some typical california rolls and salmon nigiri(or whatever raw salmon is called) i even got bored and put some raw beef on some sushi rice. it was good. its fun,you can make your own rolls. i crushed some almonds and added some avacado to the salmon and called it the mediteranian roll. be brave. remember ecoli usually only kills the very young or the very old.
