Recommend me some sushi roll recipes without raw fish?

Tell me some of your favorite sushi roll recipes that don't contain raw fish - they can be vegetarian or not. Are there any that are a good substitute for that melt-in-your-mouth texture of raw fish (vegetarian or not)? Also if there's any recipes that use (and work well with) cooked fish would be awesome as well!

Alls you can eat sushi in Chicago

Several years ago I went to an all you can eat sushi restaurant on Chicago's north side. You could order as many rolls as you wanted as long as you finished one before you asked for the next. What is the name of this restaurant? (Or failing that, what is a similar delicious sushi restaurant in Chicago?)

Fresh catch vs sushi

simple question: what is the difference between catching a fish directly out of the water and eating it verses eating sushi grade fish.I would think because they are both fresh it should be perfectly safe to eat. Thoughts?

SushiFilter: What IS this stuff & how can I be sure to not get it again?

We eat a lot of sushi, but I am no expert. We just order whatever sounds good from the description on the menu. Usually I like what I get, occasionally I get something that's just meh, but every once in a while I wind up with a roll that has this big blob of ground fish on top of it. Fish hamburger, if you will. [more inside]

Making the most of frozen salmon

I just ordered some wild Alaskan salmon online, partially in hopes of being able to prepare sushi for myself at home. But the fish feels a little spongy when I eat it raw after defrosting it. Is this because of how long it's been frozen? Is there any way to revitalize fish that has been frozen for a period of months? [more inside]

Sushi cupcakes?

My 11-year-old nephew loves to make (mostly cucumber) sushi, and he also loves cupcakes. While goofing around with him about the Sunday we'll spend together - his parents and sister are excluded from this, it's strictly us - I foolishly said, well, we'll make sushi cupcakes! And I'm being held to it. My execution is not up to my imagination. Please help me realize this!

how to make sushi with long grain rice work out as well as possible?

I know it's a sin, but I have to use long grain rice to make sushi. No short grain of any kind in my area, I promise. So, any cooking tips for how to make it turn out as good as possible? Should I skip washing it so it is stickier? Should I tweak the cooking time? etc.

Can anyone recommend a Japanese restaurant with equally strong sushi and non-sushi menus for a sushi first-timer?

NYC-foodie-filter: A friend of mine wants to try sushi for the very first time. The game plan is to order a couple of pieces as an appetizer and either proceed to a full entree if she enjoys it or bail and order something different if it turns out that raw fish is not to her liking. Can anyone recommend a Japanese restaurant with equally strong sushi and non-sushi menus for this culinary adventure? I'd prefer a place in Manhattan or Queens, easily accessible from Midtown Manhattan and reasonably priced. Not too fancy. [more inside]

London's little known Japanese gems

I'm looking for a small, local Japanese restaurant, anywhere in London, with amazing, traditional Japanese food. In New York there are a wealth of late-night quiet Japanese places where you can get more than just sushi, sashimi, tempura, rolls and so on. The kind of place it seems improper to laugh loudly, and one must be careful with one's use of wasabi. Does London have anything similar? [more inside]

Help me identify this sushi smoky, potentially Mexican-inspited, hot sauce

Help me identify this terrific hot sauce my local sushi bar offers. What makes it unusual is that it is not creamy, much darker than sriracha, has a thick marmalade consistency, and has this deep sweet, slightly smoky flavor, while still being hot. And in it are darker tiny bits of somewhat grainy/crunchy red specs. Also, I definitely see some sort of oil as part of the mixture (you can see the oil in the crevice under the top in the linked pic above). I frequent sushi places and have not found another place that carries this. One thing that occurred to me: The head chef at this place is of Mexican decent - so there is a chance he created/brought in with him something from Mexican cuisine that I am not familiar with - not sure if that helps anyone. Would love to figure out what it is and be able to but containers/make some of my own!

Looking for sushi recipes that do not involve the need for fresh fish.

Recently, I've been working on learning how to make remotely decent sushi rice, and I'm getting not too shabby at it (It tastes good at least), and messing around making some really weak sauce sushi rolls for myself and my kids. Mostly Tamago Maki. I live FAR away from a decent source of seafood, so what are some other things I can put in my Sushi that do not require fresh seafood. Lets also exclude "Krab with a K" for this exercise too. If I could get the raw fish, I would totally be using it instead, but some times a man has to make due. [more inside]
