You may or may not be a doctor (as the case may be). You are not my doctor. This is not an emergency. I will seek advice from my own physician.
It turns out I’ve developed a strong shellfish allergy as an adult. I even had a reaction to cross-contamination in a restaurant. I have an epipen and have been advised to avoid all shellfish.
I have two questions for those of you who may know.
I’ve never liked eating shellfish anyway so I don’t miss it. But I do enjoy crabbing, cooking and backing/cleaning crab for gifts. I’m told I should stay away from crab steam because the protein gets into the air. But could I be safe crabbing? What about with gloves?
The second question is about sushi. I love fish sushi and vegetarian sushi. Is there any chance that a clean sushi restaurant could serve sushi that would be safe for me, or is there cross contamination everywhere?
Does anyone have any other advice for me? I am new to this.
