Can I cut sushi grade meat from frozen fish from the market?

I want to make sushi rolls, but my local markets don’t have sushi grade fish. I don’t want to order it online, and I don’t want to drive 40 minutes to get fish… Can I cut meat from thawed fish, like salmon or tuna, and use it in sushi?

    Fish for sushi must be frozen to below -10 degrees F for a specified time period, to be sure and kill parasites. Salmon is often used, but Tuna rarely uncooked.

    If you want to make raw fish sushi, it is imperative that you purchase sushi grade fish. Otherwise, if you’re going to make sushi with cooked fish, you can just purchase from the grocery store.

    For the best, get the sushi grade, it does not have to be frozen solid and freezing does NOT kill bacteria, only heating kills it. Freezing makes it go dormant. If you do use thawed fish you can put it in the freezer to stiffen it up to help cut it.
    Do you have a butcher type place near you or a fish market that is not 40 minutes away? Get the freshest you can.

    Not a good idea. Best to inquiry at a local sushi restaurant for suggestions.

    The fish must be sushi grade and very fresh or you risk parasites, Tuna is somewhat safe, but salmon that is not sushi grade can harbor parasites.
