What Type Of Sushi Is There?
Five Major Types of Sushi
|Type of Sushi||Description||Notes|
|Nigiri||A topping, usually fish, served on top of sushi rice||Not all nigiri is raw, though this dish is best for people who want to appreciate the flavor of the fish, shellfish, or other toppings|
|Sashimi||Fish or shellfish served alone (no rice)||This is best for people who really love to taste the fish or shellfish since it comes with nothing else|
|Maki||Rice and filling wrapped in seaweed||This is what most people think of when they think of sushi rolls|
|Uramaki||Similar to the above, but rice is on the outside and seaweed wraps around the filling||These rolls often have lots of toppings and sauces — they may either be cooked or raw|
|Temaki||Sushi that has been hand-rolled into a cone shape||The cones are not as easy to share as the rolls (though very delicious!)|
