How brave are you? Does raw fish appeal to you?

I personally dove right in with tuna roll & salmon rolls.

Some cooked varieties are california roll, or a tempura shrimp roll.

Cucumber or avacado rolls are delicious too.

Oh my.. I’m hungry now!

You might like the unagi (eel).  It’s cooked fish but everyone seems to like the unagi sauce (a lot like teriyaki) that goes with the fish.

California rolls are the most beginner friendly, no raw fish. 

I am a huge fan of Philly rolls, salmon and shrimp tempura or spider rolls. All very, very yummy. Any shrimp or crab is going to be cooked.

I LOVE sushi. I even learned to make my own. lol

I’d say stay away from the sashimi for now (sliced raw fish, absolutely no rice since “sushi” actually refers to the rice) for now.  I love the stuff, but it’s not for everyone.

Definitely go for unagi if you like sweet sauces.  Also good are spider rolls (fried softshell crab YUM), spicy tuna or spicy salmon rolls (small chunks of raw fish rolled in rice…good if you want to take baby sashimi steps), and tempura rolls (usually tempura shrimp with veggies). 

If you don’t like the taste of seaweed after giving it a try, you can ask if they can use soy paper instead.  Most places have it. 

Also, I LOVE inarizushi, which is sushi rice stuffed into sweet marinated tofu pouches.  Absolutely no fish in it.

I think tuna and escolar (or other white fish) are the safest for newbies willing to try some raw fish. I’d avoid salmon unless he’s a HUGE salmon lover because it can taste very fishy. Another great option would be to get a sushi plate for 2 and let him try whatever he wants and give him all the pieces of the ones he likes. You’ll probably get some super safe stuff like sweet egg, sooked shrimp, etc, a california or tuna roll, and then a variety of fish.
