Food Sushi – The World Famous Japanese Food

Sushi is the most famous Japanese dish outside of Japan, and one of the most popular dishes among the Japanese themselves who usually enjoy sushi on special occasions

What has become a Japanese culinary art with delicious flavour and colourful form, actually evolved from very meagre beginnings?

In the 7th century, Southeast Asians introduced the technique of pickling. The Japanese acquired this same practice which consisted of packing fish with rice. As the fish fermented, the rice produced a lactic acid which in turn caused the pickling of the pressed fish. Nare-Sushi is 1300 years old and refers to the finished edible product resulting from this early method.

As with most foods, there are several variations and different ways to cook it. All it takes is a little bit of courage to try out the different variations and who knows, you may find something that you like.

Sushi is one of the best nutritional sources available to us. There are hundreds of recipes for making sushi: the basic hand rolled sushi and vegetable hand rolled sushi, but there are also several ways to get unique while making sushi

Sushi is one of the best nutritional sources available to us, which may be one reason people are turned off by it. Some people have it in their head that all health food is going to taste bad. Others may be turned off by the fact that it is seafood. But sushi is packed with lean protein, nutrients, and is low in fat.

A couple of other healthy parts to sushi are the seaweed wrap, wasabi and ginger. The seaweed wrap, which is called nori, is rich with vitamins and minerals that get lost with many other kinds of foods. As for wasabi and ginger, they contain antibacterial qualities and ginger also aids digestion and improves circulation.

By now you get the point that sushi is good for you, but that does not make it appetising to everyone. However, there are hundreds of recipes for making sushi. There is the basic hand-rolled sushi and vegetable hand-rolled sushi, but there are several ways to get unique while making sushi. If you are not a big fish fan, try out somen sushi noodle with wasabi oil and soy syrup. This is a little more complex to make, but worth it when it is cooked. As with the recommendation above, you can find the recipe at the food network online. Some of the main ingredients you will find with this dish are half kilos of somen noodles, chopped scallions, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and wasabi oil.

Not everyone is going to be a big fan of sushi. But try to muster up the courage to try the different variations and recipes out there, because it can be one of the better kinds of seafood you will try. Just because it is seafood and healthy for you; it does not mean you will not like sushi. So give it a chance.

To begin with, we recommend you to try one of the many recipes that offer Belgrade’s take-a-way restaurants “Sushi Go” (www.gosushi.rs).
