What's Sushi?

In Japanese cuisine, sushi is a food made of vinegared rice, usually topped with other ingredients including fish (cooked or uncooked) and vegetables. Sushi as an English word has come to refer to a complete dish with rice and toppings; this is the sense used in this article.

The original word Japanese: sushi, written in kanji, means "snack" and refers to the rice, but not fish or other toppings. Outside of Japan, sushi is sometimes misunderstood to mean the raw fish by itself, or even any fresh raw-seafood dishes. In Japan, sliced raw fish alone is called sashimi and is distinct from sushi

Nigiri Sushi - is vinegared rice topped with sliced raw fish, omelets and vegetables, or rolled with a variety of fillings in nori seaweed.

Chirashi Sushi - is an assortment of sashimi, omelets and vegetables placed on top of a bowl of vinegared rice.

Cut roll-Sushi or Hand roll sushi - is made by surrounding sushi rice with ingredients.

What's Sashimi

Sashimi is an important element in Japanese cuisine, where it is often served at the beginning of a meal as a palate cleanser and appetizer. It is often compared to sushi, another popular Japanese dish, although the two are actually different.

Sashimi is raw fish sliced very thin and served with a variety of garnishes and sauces. Sushi is served with rice, and often appears wrapped in specially treated seaweed known as nori.

Sashimi is always made with saltwater fish, because many freshwater fish species contain parasites which could cause intestinal distress if eaten.

In addition, the fish used for sashimi is fresh and of the highest quality, to ensure optimum flavor and healthiness.

Many restaurants keep their fish alive in saltwater tanks, ensuring that the fish can be prepared to order. When going out for sashimi, pick a reputable restaurant with an obvious supply of fresh, high quality fish.

When preparing sashimi at home, make sure that your fishmonger knows that you intend to eat the fish raw, so that he or she can recommend the most safe and fresh specimens.

Sashimi is often prepared at a bar so that customers can watch the chef. This tradition probably stems from a desire to make sure that the fish being used is fresh and of the highest quality, but it is also very interesting to watch sashimi being prepared.

Chefs use a very sharp knife to fillet the fish, removing potentially dangerous bones along with the skin.
