Ordering sushi with a shellfish allergy is a nightmare. Every specialty roll consists of the dreaded shrimp, crab, and lobster. I made a list of the most popular sushi rolls that contain absolutely no shellfish. If you have a severe allergy, make sure you double-check the menu and warn your waiter. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Note: Order sashimi (fresh slices of fish) and nigiri (raw fish over pressed vinegar rice) with your favorite seafood to guarantee absolutely no consumption of shellfish.
