I'm dying for safe (cooked) sushi! The places around me are not accommodating, so as we all know, if you want something-you have to make it yourself! I'm having the hardest time trying to find crab sticks without wheat starch. Does anyone have any suggestions? Also, what sauces have you made that are close to the real things? Thanks!!

Afraid you'll have to use real crab,  the sticks and  kameboko are all made with wheat except for one company in Hiroshima but I've never see those outside of Japan.   You can usually buy frozen crab legs  which when thawed are very nice.  Have you practice making rice? its good to practice making it  with the right  combo of vinegar and sugar.   what other dishes are you trying to make?

Do you have a sushi mat yet? Homemade sushi is so much easier to make right with a sushi mat. And they're inexpensive--less than $3 at our Oriental store. :)

Thanks for the advice! Guess I'll break down and buy the real crab legs. I'm wanting to make my favorite crab, shrimp, avocado, and mango rolls. I'd love to make a sauce similar to eel sauce. I love the sweet and savory contrast. I will be purchasing the mats and whatever else I need because sushi is my one true grievance since going gluten-free. Please share your experience with making rice or anything!

If you have to buy fresh crab legs a lot of seafood counters will steam them for you for free.  The only time I have made sushi is with my japanese friend.  Check out youtube, there are some good cooking videos on there.  I can't track down the name but there is a Chinese guy who posts videos of traditional cuisine and that is where I learned how to make my own chinese takeout.

the eel sauce is basically sweet teriyaki sometimes  with  rive vinegar or other sauce mixed in. the best sauces  are made using raw brown sugar from okinawa.  with  rice   once it s cooked  you mix vinegar and  sugar to get the taste you like. You can  try  rice vinegar instead of white vinegar.   you do need ot be careful of powdered wasabi as it is not all gluten free.  read the ingredients carefully.

sure, let me know if you run into any trouble. I'm vegan and celiac  but I trained as a chef in japan about 30 years ago.

 

A lot of it is by taste and once your used to it you'll see that no 2   chefs use the same recipes, especially for the rice. 

good luck!

 

Thanks so much, kenlove!

Be sure to use rice that sticks together well. I use Lundberg Farms sushi rice for my sushi.

Good point about the rice.  We used Kukuho Rose at the restaurant in Chicago, NIshiki was 2nd choice. I use lundberg sometimes but am spoiled since I spend a lot of time in Japan and usually bring shimai (new) rice home with me.

Made my sushi finally and was quite impressed! I see what you meant by experimenting with the rice, I have a few adjustments to make. Again, thank you for the advice!

I like making vegan sushi, once you get the rice down, try tops with blanched  ultra thin slice of carrot. slice portobello mushroom, tomato, zucchini -- anything really-- it all goes great with sushi rice

    • Hi Christiana, thanks for the reply. I am both interested in the outcome of this story for curiousity and for how it relates a bit to me,  Is your pain and pressure similar to the feeling of all your insides about to slide out onto the ground? It is similar to carrying a baby in the third trimester! I get this when I've been standing and walking for most of the day. There is also pain presenting in my Pelvic area, although I thought this was from a nerve cluster that was damaged during my hysterectomy . Is there anything you do about this? thanks again!
    • In comes SIBO Girl to join Captain NCGS   One other thought:  have you looked at the possibility of having small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)?  The pain you are feeling may be related to bloating pressure, which, if it is caused by SIBO, would continue after the removal of gluten because lots of foods feed the bacteria in your small intestines once they have become established where they don't belong.   One of the things that is confusing about celiac/gluten sensitivity is that is causes so many other things. Anemia, for example. Remove the gluten you feel better, but you may still need to treat the anemia to make those anemia-specific symptoms go away. Same thing with B vitamin supplimentation (nod to Professor Pellagra) and some of the neurological symptoms. Same with bacteria in the small intestines.  Guten affects my daughter's nerves. These affect motility, which affect her body's ability to prevent bacterial overgrowth. The removal of gluten was key to eliminating most of her symptoms. But removing excessive fermentable carbs was important for the SIBO to be kept at bay. That's the Fodmap component (but not JUST Fodmaps).  Going grain free has been amazing for her health.   Here is the best website for SIBO. Just something to consider. http://www.siboinfo.com/symptoms.html Incidentaly, SIBO is very common in folks with gluten sensitivities. I personally think that everyone diagnose with celiac disease should also be tested for SIBO just like they test for vitamin deficiencies. It would probably greatly help in recovery if you treated that condition as well. 
    • No, I was gluten free both times I had a scope.  They found eosinaphalic esophagitis and most recently ulcers.  The ulcers were the cause of the nausea apparently. i feel pretty good most of the time if I take all my vitamins, avoid sugar and carbs and lean toward the AIP diet.  I then have a corn tortilla or popcorn with my dinner and it's enough carbs for good sleep.

    • Hi Victoria I hope you get some replies as some of these people are still on this board.   Is this something you are suffering from? I thought I'd just let you know that I had this very badly at diagnosis, and it went on and on for some time. I had pelvic u/s and also a precautionary sigmoidoscopy - all was clear.  In the end what really helped was giving up all dairy for a few weeks.  It pretty much stopped - I missed my dairy though, so reintroduced it. But it was good to know it was bloating that was causing it.   But the pain was also due to something else. I still get pain to the left of my groin/pelvis when I've been carrying heavy bags and doing a lot of walking.  I have an issue with my sacroiliac joint.  Look it up - it is a common problem for coeliacs.  The pain transfers to the front of the groin, and also to the buttocks.  If I touch my left sacroiliac joint now it is really tender.  But with it I have an accompanying feeling of pain and pressure in my left groin/pelvic area, which reminds me of the time when I was expecting a baby , a simliar type of pressure.   I hope you hear from others but maybe this will help?
