If I need a platter of sushi early Saturday morning, can I buy it the day before and refrigerate it or should I try to buy it fresh? I don’t think any sushi shops will be open early enough to buy on Saturday. Thank you

I wouldn’t. Can you try to order it for Saturday? That might mean you can pick up earlier than they are usually open for

I will only let DS eat sushi made on the day (he is the only one that eats it)

I have eaten day old sushi myself, but wouldn't serve a platter of it to others.  I always order in advance and pick up on the day.

I personally only eat sushi the same day I buy it.

Sushi is definitely something that does not taste great when it's a day old.  That's not even taking into account any health/bacteria risks.  Get it fresh on the day or not at all.

I order it in advance, pick up on the day. I wouldn't serve sushi at a party/event that I purchased the day before.

IME, if they have advance warning, they are happy to have a tray ready for pick-up as soon as they open for business.

I have done food safety training and ANY cooked rice over 24 hours old should be discarded. Rice is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria.

the issue is buying it the day before is you don't know how many hours prior the rice was cooked.

Okies wonderful thank you everyone. I’ll make sure I buy it fresh or serve something else. Unfortunately when I make sushi it turns out like lumpy sausages so maybe I’ll make sandwiches as an alternative :)

Absolutely this. And I would be annoyed if I was served sushi that wasn’t made that day.

Sorry for the thread hijack - would it be ok to freeze a serving of fried rice as soon as it was cooled down, and then when you wanted to eat it defrost and cook straight away?

No worries. I may not be an authoritative source since I am the OP but yes. Any bacteria shouldn’t have time to grow. I believe the issue with sushi is rice (high risk food) + time + potential for unsafe storage (fridge at sushi shop for instance being opened regularly so not at optimal temperature) + possibility of raw seafood being incorporated + not being reheated past 60 degrees. If you froze quickly and reheated thoroughly it should be very safe.

I have done it!! Buy the sushi late in the day.

I might take that risk myself but I would never serve day old sushi to others. It’s really irresponsible.
