Sushi vs. Sashimi vs. Nigiri

You’re new to sushi. Many Japanese words refer to sushi. Let’s not overlook the basics, sashimi and Nigiri.

First, Sushi. When people hear the word, they often think of raw fish. Sushi is defined by the rice, not the fish. Sushi can refer to a wide range of foods.

Japanese rice dish, typically seasoned with salt and sugar. It is available with many toppings and condiments.

The key ingredient in sushi is sushi rice. Makizushi is the most popular sushi dish. Other common ones are chirashizushi and inarizushi. Inarizushi is a pouch filled with fried tofu and sushi rice. Nigiri sushi, on the other hand, is a hand-pressed version of sushi. Later, we’ll talk more about that.

Sashimi is a Japanese speciality consisting of thinly sliced raw meat and fish. It is often served with wasabi or soy sauce. Sashimi is not sushi because it does not contain any rice. Sashimi is usually the first course in a formal Japanese dinner. The meat or fish is cut into different thicknesses in order to highlight the delicate flavors and textures.

Nigiri is also available. Sashimi and nigiri are often confused by many people. Nigiri is also known as “hand-pressed” sushi. The topping is added to the sushi chef’s oblong mounds. The topping can include a variety of ingredients, including eel, Japanese egg omelets (fish eggs), sea urchin or uni. Sea urchin, roe and other loose ingredients are presented slightly differently. The loose topping is placed on a hand-pressed mound of rice, wrapped in seaweed.

There is sushi, sashimi and nigiri. Many other Japanese words refer to sushi. Maki and roe have already been mentioned. Uni is another good example. It is important to start with the basics. We hope that you will grow to love sushi and appreciate it more.This post was written by a professional at Suhi Inc.
