If you could only eat one type of sushi for the rest of your life, for example tuna nigiri or spicy salmon rolls, what would it be and why? I'm just starting to eat sushi and I don't have a favorite yet. In fact, I'll use responses to this question for ideas of what to try next.
I'm going to cheat a little... My favorite nigiri sushi is Shiro Maguro (Albacore) and my favorite maki sushi is a roll made at a local place (Chicago area) that they call a Mexican Roll (maguro, hamachi, sake (salmon), avocado, cucumber, jalapeno and cilantro, served with lime and spicy mayo).
Favorite nigiri sushi is hamachi (yellowtail). It's also great cooked (the cut known as hamachi kama).
My favorite nigiri sushi is mackerel (regular or Spanish mackerel). It is oilier than other fish, and has more texture, which I think enhance the flavor.
My favorite? Jeez Louise, that's like asking which one of my kids I like the best!
If I had to choose (sushi, not kids), I guess it'd have to be toro (tuna belly)....
