Hello there! It’s getting colder here. How have you been?
Today I want to write about sushi. Do you know that we have so many different kinds of sushi?
Nigiri is the most popular and famous in the world.
Besides Nigiri, we have so many different kinds of sushi. I don’t think I can mention everything, but I want to mention some which I am familiar with.
A couple of days ago, I made Chirashi. This is home-made sushi.
I mixed dried veggies, mushrooms, tiny fish called jyako, eggs, raw sermon, cucumbers, fish paste called kamaboko, renkon (Japanese vegetable) and so on. Since it’s easy for fixing, I make this often.
I was born and grew up close to Kyoto. In Kyoto we have hako-zushi.
My favorite one is the brown ones. They are grilled eels.
I lived in Wakayama prefecture with my hubby 20 years ago. Kakinoha-shushi is really popular there. It looks like hako-zushi, but the difference is after we make the sushi, we wrap it with a fruit (persimmon) leaf. I love kakinoha-shushi too!
Next is my mom’s favorite! I didn’t like the sushi for a long time, but recently I came to like it. Saba-sushi is made from a vinegar flavored mackerel.
The last one is called Masu-zushi. This is a bigger version of kakinoha-sushi, but after we make the sushi, we wrap it with bamboo leaves. The sushi is local food of Toyama. Since my father in-law’s hometown is Toyama prefecture, we often get the sushi from him. The red fish is a trout.
Which one looks yummy for you? Which one do you want to try out?
All have different flavors and all are good!
I hope this blog entry helps to learn about sushi more.
Have a lovely day! See you around next weekend here again!
