So, are you ready to have your world rocked by the UK’s exciting Japanese food scene? If you’re new to the world of sushi don’t worry, we’ve got a few basic explanations of what sushi is and why people love sushi so much down below. 

What is sushi and why do people love it so much?

Sushi is a traditional Japanese delicacy that typically consists of rice, vegetables, fish, seaweed, and sauces like wasabi or soy. 

Did you know that sushi isn’t just raw fish? You can have cooked sushi as well! The rice in cold (and warm sushi) is always cooked, of course. People often enjoy sushi because of its excellent health benefits alongside its delicious taste. 

We all know fish is rich in Omega-3 but did you know it’s the key to improving our brain health? Eating food rich in omega-3 improves brain functions like concentration, brain fog, and can even be linked to improving the brain health of those who suffer with mental illnesses like depression and bipolar. Omega-3 is vital to a child’s cognitive development too!

You can also have sushi which contains chicken, duck, pork, beef and any other meats. The fish that is mainly used in sushi is tuna, salmon, and shrimp.

Sushi rolls are typically prepared in two ways:

Nigiri – vinegared rice packed together in an oval shape with fish placed on top.

Or…

Maki – vinegared rice, fish, vegetables and sauce rolled together and bound by seaweed (otherwise known as nori). 

If you enjoy sushi you may also like sashimi which is a serving of thinly sliced raw fish and meat served without rice. Sashimi translates to ‘pierced fish’. Unlike sushi, sashimi includes a lot of different types of fish rather than just tuna, salmon and shrimp. Sashimi can include mackerel, yellowtail, shrimp, scallops, clams and octopus. 

Sushi platters aren’t even limited to fish with sliced beef and other meats making their way to Japanese platters, there’s something tasty for all meat eaters to enjoy (if fish isn’t your first choice).
