We have to say we’re a little sensitive about sushi. We noticed that there is not much information about Sushi and sushi is thought to be just raw fish. But it is not!
We would like to explain in 9 sentences what is Sushi before giving the recipe.
- Sushi is a special flavor, a Japanese specialty.
It is a Japanese specialty that is washed or baked with a special rice and served on top or inside of rice prepared with a mixture of Mitzukan (rice vinegar), sugar and salt and placed with ingredients such as fish and other seafood or vegetables.
- This food is the general name given to sushi pilaf dishes prepared with rice vinegar.
Algae wrapped presentation is the most common form. But this is just one of the four kinds of sushi, basically.
- There are four basic types of sushi.
NIGIRI: Hand squeezed rice prepared by squeezing the seafood prepared on the boiled rice.
MAKI: Boiled rice, seafood and extra ingredients; sushi
URAMAKI: It is a kind of sushi where seaweed is used as internal material and seafood is placed on rice. We can say that one is the most consumed.
SASHIMI: Seafood served in slices without rice.
- Sushi does not mean raw fish.
Sushi doesn’t mean raw fish.
Among them are not only raw slices of fish but also other cooked seafood. So you never have to eat raw fish.
- Sushi is a freshly eaten dish.
Freshness is one of the biggest rules at Sushi. Must be eaten within a few hours at the latest.
- There are samurai rules in your kitchen.
In the kitchen, where a fish is cut, there are rules such as not cutting another fish and cutting each fish with different knives.
- Unhealthy, on the contrary, a meal rich in Omega-3.
Since many seafood naturally have low fat levels, unsaturated fat ratios and omega-3 amounts are also high.
- The flavor of sushi is complemented by ginger root pickles called Gari.
The most important feature of Gari is that it resets the taste in the mouth while eating different sushi varieties.
- The place to taste with soy is not the rice of sushi, but the fish itself.
Otherwise, the rice will absorb the sauce and you will see that even in your dreams that night you drank water 🙂
