Green sushi? Only for St Patrick's Day

A sushi chef in Boise, Idaho is preparing specially coloured dishes ahead of this week’s festivities for St Patrick’s Day.

A SUSHI CHEF in Idaho has come up with a unique dish to offer to his patrons next Thursday when they come to celebrate St Patrick’s Day: he’s concocted his own green sushi.

Brett Nunez, who runs Superb Sushi in Boise, has developed a Shamrock Roll: a shrimp tempura and avocado, wrapped up in rice and a bright green soy paper.

The dish is topped up with a lime sauce, and comes with a glass of Sapporo beer – which, of course, is green too.

As the Idaho Statesman says, however, the deal won’t come cheap: the dish costs $12.99 (€9.35), with an extra $2 more if the diner wants a glass of hot (green) sake.

The article continues, however, to explain that staff in neighbouring restaurants – some of which claim to sell extraordinary amounts of corned beef – are also preparing to sell unprecedented loads of the stuff, apparently perceiving it as a popular native Irish dish.

What’s the weirdest St Patrick’s Day meal you’ve ever heard of? Let us know in the comments.
