Is this our revenge for Pearl Harbor?
Anyone who knows anything about Sushi, knows that sushi is about the rice, not the toppings. The topping is variable and doesn't have to be fish, raw or otherwise. No less a personage than Ms. Asako Kishi, most famous as a regular judge on the original "Iron Chef". In her book Sushi: A Light and Right Diet, she suggest alternative toppings as diverse as canned smoked oysters, prosciutto, turkey, canned sardines and, well, Spam.
But this is just wrong. It is Sushi for a Sandra Lee/Rachael Ray world - not for mine!
