Then don't forget this coming one of fun food holidays, International Sushi day which is June 18th.
Many people think sushi is raw fish but it really has nothing to do it but just referring to the vinegar seasoned rice used in making.
There are so many different types of this dish that are generally called sushi.
So I thought it would be fun to list some of them.
Sashimi=>simply slices of raw fish (often salmon or tuna). It is not served with the sushi rice.
Nigiri=> It is made from forming a handful of rice into a mound, and placing a piece of seafood over the top.
Maki rolls=>It is made from wrapping wrapping sushi rice and various fillings inside a seaweed wrapper.
If you don't like seaweed, you can ask for soy paper.
My personal favorite is Futomaki which are thick sushi rolls with a number of fillings.
It's good to use your favorite fillings like avocado, eggs, dried kanpyo (strips of gourd), mushrooms, radish and cucumber...
do you have any favorite one(s)?
- Yummmmm...Now you are making me hungry.
Like I said in early post, sushi is not all about raw fish but variety of food/veggies mixed with rice...
Anyway, Katt...you have a good taste I too love Unagi(freshwater eels) especially when I add an extra wasabi mixed with gingers on the top...love the sensation of it's making my nose tingle.
Have you tried wasabi ice cream before? Yummmmmm!!!
Lucy, I also live close to L.A and my favorite restaurant is Kiriko which is located in Olympic Blvd and the price is very fair. Which one's your favorite?
Wow,Lips...You never stop impress me...have you tried skinny silver chop sticks(harder to use)?
I think you would like these also- Rock n roll and tempera roll.
Hmmm Wasabi Ice Cream... never encountered that, but if they can have garlic ice cream then I am sure it would be good! And if you say yummmmmmmmmm I believe you! Funny how the sensations in your mouth are such an important part of sushi... one of the reasons Tobiko is my favorite is because of the little popping of the flying fish roe and the cool raw quail egg mixed in with that... I don't like octopus for the same reason, the rubbery feel of it in my mouth... but you can bring on the squid! LOL And I love those kind of fancy rolls that both you and lips showed in your pictures... I am now officially starving!!
