The reason sushi looks so beautiful is to disguise disgusting seaweed as something very delicious. I mean, I love to eat vegetables, but I make an exception for seaweed or any other sea vegetable. It tastes just like fish, which I have never liked. However, I make allowances for hush puppies, commonly known as “the cornbread of the sea.”
I blame my distaste for anything from the sea on my grandmother’s Friday fish frys. It was catfish, so the smell from the oil alone was horrifying and I am saying this as a Southerner who, everybody knows, will eat anything deep-fried.
