Sex On A Plate

My first sushi experience was with a male friend who'd eaten it many times before.  I was nervous, mostly because my mother is from the generation that cooks everything, and cooks it a lot.  ( She is slowly growing past this. ) 

From the first cup of tea to the last spoon of green tea ice cream, I loved the whole meal.  Salty seaweed, slippery tuna, fleshy salmon with its tense texture...  I loved it all.  It was so sensuous, and so controlled.  Warm rice, cool fish..  I loved the bubbles of roe popping on my tongue.  I loved the coiled spring feeling of careful selection and precise placement. 

So you can see why I'm so very careful with whom I eat sushi.  It has the potential for great embarassment.

I felt the exact same way my first time... I didn't know to go easy on the wasabi though!

i do like wasabi, tommy, but i don't go crazy with it. it's such a strong flavour that it overpowers some of the more delicate fishes.<br />

nell, i have to tell you that i'll eat yours. SO, so right. = )

I enjoyed very much the talent displayed here with the sly comparisons and all, but I have to tell you that raw fish just isn't right. : P
