What About Sushi? How to make and eat sushi

New Hampshire sushi guideSushi, a traditional Japanese dish has many different variations, and can seem somewhat puzzling at a first glimpse, but they all contain one very important ingredient which makes it Sushi. Shari or the Sushi rice is short grained Japonica rice mixed with a few spices and rice vinegar to create the stickiness needed to clump and or roll the sushi. The variation comes with the toppings be it raw, lightly cooked, or marinated fish, and the fillings such as vegetables or eggs. Ask us about NH restaurants or share your dining reviews and comments.

Nigiri Sushi

Nigiri Sushi is a typical type of sushi made with a mound of Shari pressed together in the palm of the chef’s hands. Next the topping is placed, and finally in some instances a thin band of Nori (seaweed) is wrapped around it holding the Shari and toppings together.

Maki Sushi

Maki Sushi is cylindrical type of sushi, with the Nori (seaweed) on the outside, the Shari, on the inside, and the topping and filler (fish and vegetables) in the inside. With the Maki roll there comes variations where placement of the Nori and the Shari could be reversed.

Sashimi is in fact not sushi, since it does not contain the Shari. Western cultures have blended the two and you will find Sashimi on most Sushi menus.

Sashimi is fresh raw fish cut thin almost a centimeter thick usually garnish with thinly sliced radish and mint leaves.
It is often served with a bowl of white rice on the side, but isn’t wrapped or stacked with rice. >

Ginger & Wasabi

No sushi is complete without the ginger and wasabi that comes with every plate. The Thinly sliced ginger root is used to cleanse one’s pallet before going on to a next piece, and the wasabi is mix with soy sauce to create a nice flavor for dipping the sushi into. With this newfound knowledge you can go out and now enjoy sushi at one of our many fine sushi bars in NH. Remember that sushi is not just the food but also the way it is presented.

Kampai! (Cheers!)
