I will absolutely go Godzilla on sashimi of all kinds. I'm pretty much grain free so I live without the rice and go nuts for salmon, tuna, octopus, eel...
I also like to make my own rolls with my own ingredients... most favorite would include cold scrambled egg, bacon, smoked salmon and wasabi. I'd like to say I avoid sesame oil, but I use it as a soysauce substitute with wasabi mixed in... although I'm considering making wasabi mayo with macadamia oil or something similar to break me of that O6 monstrosity...
Yes. I have sushi and sashimi usually twice a week. Just make sure to order some sashimi so that you're not filling up on a ton of rice in the sushi. As far as grains go, white rice is about as harmless as they come -- I wouldn't stress out about eating white rice as long as you have the activity levels to support all the starch intake.
The one thing I'm concerned about is the quality of the fish. It would be a great meal if it had wild caught, sustainable fish. However, a lot of sushi places use farmed fish, which generally has higher levels of pollutants and omega 6. Its probably not too too bad, but really not ideal.
White rice is also ok if you're reasonably healthy and looking for some starch. It has virtually no nutrients, but it has very little if any toxins.
So, overall I think it's good if you get a place that has good quality fish, and an acceptable place if you don't.
Sushi is great. Konbu kelp used in seasoning the (dashi stock) rice (its also great if you make fish soup to use as seasoning), contains many vital minerals and very rich in iodine too. And isnt it the best tasting fast food on earth? :) Buy only sushi that has been prepared under your eyes.
There's a place here that usually has several different types of wild salmon. It's simply amazing compared to the Atlantic farmed/colored garbage that every other place has. I'll usually go for some aji ( http://www.sustainablesushi.net/the-fish/aji/ ) as well. If I tried to fill up on sashimi I think I'd have to file for bankruptcy. Nothing wrong with some rice.
I am totally game, In Hawaii "Poke" is extremely popular. it is basically a diced form of Sashimi so we get to skip the rice complication entirely. I agree that as long as one is grabbing wild caught the food quality is spot on.
