Wednesday, September 24th — Sushi

September 24, 2008

Today I Learned…

…that the term “sushi” refers specifically to the vinegared rice used in a “sushi roll,” /not/ raw fish.  Sushi, therefore, is vinegared rice served with an ingredient which may or may not be fish.  The rice itself is known as shari, and raw fish served by itself is sashimi (or a bowling ball having a dream…).

I still don’t like it, though.
