Does anyone eat it?  I love it, love it, love it but am afraid to eat it.

I eat it all the time, either in restaurants or when I make it at home.
 
I generally stay away from raw freshwater fish because of potential parasites.

Lisa,

I eat it all the time.... I was at the GI's office yesterday and stopped on my way home for sushi....I had Chirashi aka Sushi Bowl; rice in a bowl with raw fish on top. Yummy.

You can't let UC rule your life....I'm finally understanding this after 3 or 4 years of dealing with this crummy disease.

Lisa, unless you are SERIOUSLY immune compromised, you can eat sushi to your heart's content.

I eat it a lot, its great for UC people in general - very healthy, rice is great for you and the fish of course contains the Omega fats that we humans need.

Shashimi, the raw fish component of a sushi is fine so long as its fresh; though I will back seconder's comment with regard to avoiding raw fresh water fish.

My suggestions are simply stick to salt water fish unless its cooked, if its cooked no worries and eat at a clean reputable sushi place with a high food turnover (you do NOT want sashimi that has been sitting there all day).

I LOVE my sushi and would cry a lot if I had to give it up!!!

Hi Severin,

I live in New York, so there are plenty of good Sushi restaurants. I'm sooooo excited. This is such a treat for me. I don't eat much of the raw stuff. I like a California roll and I love Yellowtail and Tuna. I also like the eel, but that's cooked. I'll lay off the Philadelphia roll because that has a big wad of cream cheese in it, but when this flare calms down, Philadelphia here I come!!!!! LOL

I love sushi. Don't be too wary of the raw stuff. Find the few things that you like the most and stick to them, then try and add a thing or two as you go each time. Here's what i get, almost as a rule:

 

2 pc yellow tail

2 pc salmon

2 pc fresh water eel (unagi)

2 pc tuna

 

1 Tokyo roll (like a rainbow roll but with tempura and spicy tuna inside)

1 spicy salmon roll

1 dragon roll (or a spider roll which isthe same thing but with tempura)

I leave the place stuffed every time :)

Sushi is one of my favorite/least troubling foods!
I love love love it! I mostly eat raw salmon, I used to get really bad bloating and gas after sushi, and was worried that i couldn't eat it, but then i stopped getting unagi (eel) and those problems went away, i don't know if its all the sugar they probably use the in bbq-esque sauce they put on that or the eel itself. but thats been my experience anyway.
Oh yeah, and i read an article about spicy tuna that said that sushi restaurants will marinate the tuna they have thats too old to use in rolls and chop it up for thier spicy tuna. I never got spicy tuna anyway because I dont like it but i have a friend who does not have uc but always gets really bad D after eating spicy tuna, so be warned!

Capncolitis, you are speaking my language!!!!

Winni, the spicy tuna used to be one of my favorites, but for some reason I taste it for days. Same thing with an onion bagel. My body just holds on to that smell. I can see the logic in what you are saying, though. It makes sense. The spice is soooo strong that you wouldn't be able to taste the bad or turning tuna. The eel I would really have a hard time giving up, so I'm going to go into denial for as long as possible!!! LOL Did you ever have the fluke? It's delicious. Very fresh and clean tasting. Man, my mouth is watering!!! LOL

It's pretty good. It's hard to beat. Millions of Japanese people can't be wrong.

Different fish has different texture but the rice shouldn't be mushy, and I'd say sushi encompasses a range of textures and tastes. I'm fond of mackerel but some people don't really like it. It's a little softer and bit stronger tasting.

Give it a try.

It's also fairly easy to make at home, and you can control the ingredients.

Sorry.  I meant sushi in general rather than mackerel specifically.

Tuna is good too.

(Not to be a downer, but I avoid salmon completely.  That industry has been seriously compromised and it's hard to make a good choice when it comes to salmon.  The wild stuff verges on extinction; the farm raised stuff is full of antibiotics and destroys the habitat it's grown in.)

I love sushi but am always sure to get it from somewhere reputable. We have a sushi buffett near my house that I won't step foot in but plenty of great sushi joints.

The best i"ve had was in San Diego..it was a chef speical with mango and sooo good.

Yeah, colitis-owns, it's bad enough to have a digestive system disease without having to worry about industrial farming.

I think I would also avoid the sushi buffet. (That said, sometimes a grocery store's selection can be pretty good in a pinch.)

I would die without sushi....I am six months pregnant and so have been avoiding it (as I usually go for the raw stuff) so I am planning a big sushi feast the day after I give birth LOL!
I would recomend though that you make sure the fish is fresh....and the sushi is best when made fresh for you. I try and avoid the "mall" sushi...you really don't know how old the ingredients are....
