Sushi - An Introduction

Sushi, is a general term for all dishes using �sushi meshi� (vinegared rice) in combination with other ingredients. The most common types of sushi are:

Hand shaped Sushi (Nigiri-Zushi) consisting of a topping, smeared with wasabi sitting on a pillow of rice.

Rolled Sushi (Maki-Zushi) has countless variations, with each sushi chef producing their own variations. At its simplest rolled sushi consists of nori seaweed spread with rice and topped with one or more fillings.

Hand Rolled Sushi (Temaki-Zushi) is sushi which consists of nori seaweed which is shaped and filled with sushi rice and fillings. This style of sushi is ideal for dinner parties and summer picnics.

Sushi Ingredients

Fillings for sushi are limited only by your own imagination, traditionally ingredients such as pickled daikon radish (takuan), dried gourd ribbons (kanpyo), lotus root (renkon), Shiitake mushrooms, and Wasabi are used in conjunction with fresh fish and vegetables.
