After all the tuna talk of the past couple of weeks, I gave in to my sushi cravings.
I shared a bento box at my favorite local Japanese restaurant, which included a smattering of nigiri sushi (slabs on rice), maki-zushi (rolls), sashimi (slabs), a scallop dish, salad, tempura and miso soup.
The point of this list is to remind anyone giving in to tuna fears that it's still OK to eat sushi. I enjoyed two pieces of tuna (maybe an ounce each) and lots of other delicious, omega-3-rich seafood.
The point of sushi is to try, taste and explore different kinds of seafood. This is the place where I learned that I do not enjoy raw mackerel, but I savor every bite of barbecue eel.
What's more, Japanese restaurants often are the easiest option for a group, because the vegetarians, meat-eaters, fish lovers and even vegans can all enjoy a delicious, healthy meal.
What's scary about that?
