Today (Nov. 1, 2014) the U.S. will celebrate National Sushi Day, an industry that brings in a total annual revenue of $2.25 million. Your local, professionally trained sushi chefs at the seven D/FW Market Street locations, who prepare fresh sushi in-store year-round, are offering the following tips for consumers to celebrate the holiday.

Follow these “Do’s and Don’ts” to make healthy choices when ordering sushi:  

Don’t …

  • Order baked or fried rolls. Avoid anything with the word “crunchy.”
  • Load up on spicy mayo or other cream-based sauces, as they are often high in fat.
  • Sample too much. Try sticking to one roll, which at most restaurants is comprised of six pieces. Instead of ordering another roll, satisfy your hunger by ordering a side of veggies or soup.

Do …

  • Order salmon or tuna, both of which are low in calories and high in Omega-3s, protein and vitamin D.
  • Start with a side of edamame, soup or salad before your sushi.
  • 3. Try sashimi – it’s the meat of the fish, without rice or toppings.
