A Bit About Sushi

No Comments8 March 19:53

There isn’t just one type of sushi, much as there isn’t one just type of Japanese food. Here’s an explanation of a few popular types of sushi.

Nigiri Nigiri is the most popular form of sushi, where slices of fish or other toppings are placed on top of a rectangular bite-sized base of rice. Sometimes, there is a piece of nori (seaweed) that ties the fish to the rice and sometimes there may be a bit of wasabi (hot mustard) between the fish and the rice.
Maki-zushi Maki-zushi, or rolled sushi, is made by rolling various fish, vegetable ingredients and rice into a sheet of dried nori by using a bamboo mat called a makisu. The roll is cut into bite-sized pieces and served, often decoratively, on a plate. Maki-zushi may also be referred to as norimaki.
Sahimi Sashimi is fresh, sliced raw fish, decoratively presented on a platter with a variety of colorful garnishes. It often is the first course in a formal Japanese meal, but it can also be the main course, presented with rice and miso soup in separate bowls.
Te-maki Te-maki or “hand roll”-style sushi is made by rolling a variety of ingredients into nori, usually smaller than some of the other roll types and shaped like a cone so that it is easy to eat with your hands.
Te-maki Gunkan-maki is sushi in which the nori is wrapped around the rice to create a sort of shallow dish. In this way, toppings such as sea urchin or salmon roe are contained on the top of the rice base and can be enjoyed.
