Get the fake surimi crab if you just want to practice. Pretty much any supermarket or grocery store has it.

Uh, if you're going to eat it either way, it's not going to be "wasted"--why not eat the real stuff?

How can you mess up anyway? The worst that can happen would be that it looks wierd--it's still going to taste the same. Go for some fresh dungeness crab....

Sushi isn't that hard to make...find a Japanese market (Uwajimoto, etc.) where you can buy sheets of the seaweed...it usually comes in ~10"x10" squares. Get a good sticky rice. I recommend Kyokuko Rose. You'll need a rolling matt or some other semi-rigid material to roll the sushi in. Put the seaweed on the matt, make a row of rice (a little joint rolling experience may come in handy here ) and place your crab and/or other desired ingredients in the rice. Roll it up (the heat and moisture from the warm rice will 'seal' the roll), slice it up (a REALLY sharp knife helps) and serve (with real wasabi of course). Damn good, cheap eats, and always impresses house guests. JDM Dinner, yo.
Peace,

Now you understand why California rolls <> sushi

Just get some tuna or salmon and make those rolls for a first timer

Partly because I figured it would be harder to find sushi-grade fresh fish than cooked crab. So for my first time, I figured I'd try something a little harder to screw up.

Plus, I like California rolls. Nothing wrong with that. I also like more traditional sushi as well, including Nigiri sushi. But there's nothing wrong with Cali rolls.

I didn't say there was anything wrong with it, I just said that it isn't really sushi.

Plus it should be fairly easy to find sushi grade tuna. Most any fish market should have it. You may want to try Central Market:

yeah california rolls don't taste bad or anything and it's a lot less risky than buying sketchy fish.

For sure. When dealing with anything raw you need to make sure you have the freshest meat available. I know some stores actually have sections with sushi grade fish. I wanted to make my own sushi, but I'm not confident enough in the local store's fish to take the risk.

Snow crab legs? If cracked properly you get a nice 6in~ relatively thin section of delicious snow crab. $7-10/ lb. I think it'd work well.
