Land Locked Sushi

We do not live anywhere near a source of good sushi quality fish. In fact, I don’t think there is anywhere within a few hour drive where we could buy it. Without paying obscene shipping costs, we had to modify our sushi night to incorporate a different kind of fish. Here is our Land Locked Spicy Tuna Sushi!
