I tried sushi for the first time about 5 years ago, and it was love at first bite.
In Mexico, sushi is served with two kinds of soy sauce:
- Soy sauce with lime
- Soy sauce with jalapeño
I have always been enamoured with the lime soy sauce. (Seriously, don’t even try to give me sushi with regular soy sauce. It’s kinda gross.) The jalapeño soy sauce, however… not so much. I always thought, “Jalapeño soy sauce? What’s wrong with Mexicans?”
Then I started ordering a sushi roll that came with a side of chipotle mayo. HEAVEN. DIVINE. That little kick of spice was just perfect. Just the lime soy sauce was no longer enough to satisfy my weekly sushi binges. I NEEDED spicy with my sushi.
Then yesterday, I realized I had evolved to this:
My new-found need for spicy sushi has now led me to actually using the jalapeño soy sauce I used to make fun of Mexicans for. (bonus points if there’s chipotle mayo AND jalapeño soy sauce)
I’m becoming one of them. This should automatically qualify me for Mexican citizenship.
Somebody slap me when I start putting ketchup and worcestershire sauce on my pizza.
