California Rolls? (sushi & pregnancy)


I guess you guys know by the ticker in my signature that I have an unhealthy obsession with sushi

I've been DYING for that taste of wasabi and soy sauce on some sort of roll. I heard that California Rolls are all right, if the crab meat is cooked. Does anyone know if all restaurants cook the crab meat - like is it part of the recipe for it to be cooked? Or do some places leave it raw? (I've never had raw crab, so idk what it tastes like.)

Also, I've heard that it's not just the fish in the sushi, it's also the seaweed that is dangerous for the baby. Any truth to that?

What are your thoughts on sushi and pregnancy?

Hey I didn't want to read and run. I've been craving sushi as well but I have done several google searches that advice against it. So I have been taking care of my craving by eating California Rolls.

i read that sushi is fine so long as it's not got raw fish in it, and that seaweed is fine and a good source of nutrients and stuff... i'm still eating a little sushi so long as it's well in it's use by date and doesn't have raw fish x

Nothing wrong with sushi actually ...

Just check the raw fish has been frozen.

There is a very small chance that there is a small parasite worm thingy in raw fish which is killed by either cooking or freezing. That's the science behind it.

My OH is very nervous about seafood and my pregnancy, thanks to a quack at my OBGYN who said to avoid ALL fish, whether it's cooked or not. Argh!

Hopefully my new OB says California Rolls are OK.

Most resturants will freeze the raw fish to proper standards and therefore you CAN actually eat sushi!!

I'd be damned if I had to give it up
