    Fresh Sushi / Sashimi Grade Yellowfin Tuna Fillets (Ahi, Maguro)
    Reg price: $15/lb
    Member price: $11/lb - 5% member discount = $10.45/lb
    3lbs minimum and the shipping is EXPENSIVE unless you use Golden State Overnight (CA & NV Residents Only)

    I'm in bay area so I'll just buy it at half moon bay for around $15-$16/lbs. This is good for those who like it but can't get it around your area.

    Wow! I just spent over an hour looking at that site and a couple of the links. There is some cool stuff there. I want to try some sea urchin now.

    Cool deal, for me it never tastes as good as when my favorite sushi chefs make it for me. I go to a great place in Sherman Oaks in Los Angeles called Iwata on Ventura blvd. great sushi, been going there since 95'. I live 35 miles away from there now and drive there 1-2 a week for a sushi fix. I have eaten at Nobu, Kio and other hot spots but keep coming back to Iwata.

    Haha...gotta love those landlocked seafood lovers. As my dad would say "Real fish does not come in brown squares." On the east coast I like to see the entire fish...gotta know that the cut comes from an actual animal. (Now if only KFC would show pictures of their "chickens")...

    I get fresh sushi-grade tuna for $8.99/lb here in FL.
    I still don't understand why Yellowtail ($15+/lb, at least)
    is so expensive though...cool link, never thought about
    having fish "shipped" in.

    on a slightly different note...
    how the hell do you make an inside out roll?
    do you just lay out the nori, spread the rice, flip it over and lay out ingredients and roll it up backwards?

    and where can I buy some masago?

    Does freezing it for a few days really change the taste? I need to find a cheap place locally...anyone know of a good cheap market to buy sashimi grade yellowtail or salmon in the San Francisco area? There's a place on Irving/23rd that I've been meanin' to try out. 99 Ranch and Lion Market suck.

    all sushi is frozen at one time.....its dangerous to eat if it is not, kills the bacteria or something

    this isnt in your normal freezer though, somethine like -40degrees C.

    Jaybert, I'm no sushi expert but I think you're wrong.

    Freezing any fish significantly affects the flavor. Is it unedible after frozen? No, it still tastes pretty good, but is the flavor affected? yes.

    For an inside out roll, here's how I do it. Dunno if it's the right way but it works for me:
    spread the rice on your nori the same way as normal, but do the whole thing, don't leave any gaps on the edges and try and make it uniform. Then wrap seran wrap around your sushi mat thingy with all of the creases on 1 side so 1 side is just 1 layer of seran wrap. Now lay your rice/nori combo rice down on the smooth side, put ur goodies on the inside, roll up and squeeze. Your rice shouldn't stick to the plastic wrap too bad.

    Masago....i dunno, just hunt around for a shop run by 5 slanty eyed people who you dont understand, walk up to the oldest one and say MA-SA-GO a few times, shouldnt be too tough.

    I don't know if there is any good sushi place. You can get fresh tuna at the Pillar Point harbor.

    I live in Los Angeles and the only place I trust to buy sashimi quality fish is at Marukai Market in Gardena. Their other locations probably have the same quality but I can't say since I've never been there before.

    A least once a month they have maguro (tuna) for $10/lb, yellowtail for $17/lb, salmon for $15/lb. A pound of sashimi goes a long way. Sashimi is good, but Hawaiian-style poki is best!
