I know lots of people like sushi, and other raw fish; but it was an adventure I did NOT want to have. My ex-husband is Tongan. At our wedding feast, among the several types of fish they flew in was Ling Cod which is a very large, very ugly deep sea fish. I was mortified, as I had seen the fish before; my dad caught one when he went deep sea fishing. Well, as I explained my apprehension to my new husband, he explained that he really did understand, but that he couldn't help the fact that his family would be very offended. So I talked to myself into trying it. It is fabulous!

This really surprised me. By psyching myself out for a week, I was able to try it! That old saying from the commercial "Try it, you'll like it" comes to mind often; but this time especially! I still actually, love it!
