The pink/yellow sliced ginger served at most sushi restaurants, any idea if it's paleo? Thanks!

Even worse, the source of fish (farmed salmon most certainly!) they use in most sushi restaurants. Very questionable. Plus, way too much rice mixed with that high-sugar vinegar. It's really easy to slice up and pickle ginger at home, and slap... (more)

I love sushi, and also when I eat steak I cannot get it rare enough. I only cook it because I cannot risk getting sick or any type of parasite. I am about over worried about parasites perhaps because my father got them while working overseas and... (more)

Salmon tends to carry parasites, which is why I wouldn't suggest eating it raw unless you have a commercial strength freezer. Tuna, on the other hand, usually does not. The only concern is with surface bacteria.

I'm trying the paleo diet, but I LOVE sushi. I love Boston Rolls without cream cheese... The only thing in that that's not paleo would be the rice... How often would it be okay to cheat and eat this (1x Boston Roll, sans cream cheese), provided... (more)

Brown rice sushi may be a better option for sushi. A lot of restaurants have it now and I enjoy the texture more than white rice.

So I was planning on making some maki sushi rolls at home without rice. I bought some coconut aminos to sub for soy sauce. And now I am wondering: is wasabi paleo-friendly?

Christa_Crawford 0 · January 07, 2013 at 8:44 PM

Wasabi is a grated root, and it's paleo-friendly. It's related to horseradish, which is also a great condiment.

I love raw fish. In fact, I prefer raw fish over cooked fish any day. Yesterday, my roommate said she thought that in order to eat salmon or any other fish raw, the fish has to be "sushi grade." Is there any truth to this statement? And if this is... (more)

Smoked Salmon is of course safe to eat -- but it's not "raw", it's been smoked. (note: even cold smoked salmon, while not cooked, is not considered raw in the culinary sense) Certifying fish as sushi grade just means that it has gone through a... (more)

I love sashimi. Sushi used to be a goto for me. I quit when I went Primal. Then when we were out for a office-mate's birthday I decided to try sashimi and I LOVE IT. The radish is almost certainly daikon which is a radish, but looks like a... (more)

Why do I feel nauseated after eating sushi sometimes? Seems to happen more when I eat more sashimi. Is there something about raw fish that bothers the gut?

Could it be the nori? I can't stomach that stuff AT ALL. It's seriously bad business for me, up there with wheat, raw onions and agave, which are the worst.

Do you make your own raw salmon sushi? If so what precautions do you take?

I've been known to make my own. Don't know what precautions you think one needs to take. Sushi is pretty paleo, assuming you're not anti-rice.

As far as I know, seaweed doesn't have gluten. So most likely cross contamination, or seasoning. Are you using any seasoning? Is the seaweed seasoned? What brand is it?

I've also heard that the fish should be frozen, but not kept in the freezer too long. I assume your fish is pretty fresh since you caught it. I'd probably just cut it up and eat it, to be honest, but I'm pretty adventurous with food :) You could... (more)

I think you should just make the best of what you have. Eat some sashimi and don't sweat it. Maybe eat extra clean for a few days after? Or eat some brazil nuts, which have a lot of selenium which helps with the mercury. I don't worry about the... (more)
