Kosher sushi list ?

  • 5

I eat at Non-Kosher sushi places but pick only kosher fish. I'd like to be able to order a Omakase and give them a list of acceptable fish. Does anyone have one or a web site that might have a printable list?

      Thanks Mrfood. That is a very compleate list. I was hoping for a more compact version. One that I could actually hand to the chef.

      I got the idea from a recent trip to France. I found a one page list that listed kosher fish with the french translation. We carried it with us everywhere. without it I would have eaten only veggies.

        I think you are going to have to create your starting from a list of common sushi terms such as this - http://sushiref.com/glossary/ and then weed out the ones that re not kosher - I thin what you will find is you left with a very short list - the non-kosher sushi restaurants I have gone about 2/3 to 3/4 of what is on the menu uses some for of non-kosher seafood -
