I am no longer a sushi virgin
Perhaps it is because I have been vegetarian (no fish) for nearly 13 years... or the fact that I've been gluten-free for almost 6 years and feared that gluten would sneak into my rice rolls... I never ventured into the world of sushi.
Anyway... I went to Sushi K Express in Cloverdale Mall (Toronto) and asked the man behind the counter if any of the products were gluten-free/wheat-free. He was very knowledgeable and immediately told me only the vegetarian ones were free of wheat. Perfect! (Imitation crab and stuff is usually made with wheat gluten.)
He offered to make a fresh batch, instead of offering me the ones that were sitting in the display case. I watched as he prepared the sushi, made with avocado, cucumber, rice and seaweed sheets. He wiped the counter down before cutting up the pieces and gave me the tray of fresh sushi.
I will definitely be back for more. Now I understand the sushi craze!
Now if I could only figure out how to use these chopsticks...
