What is sushi?

Sushi is the Japanese preparation and serving of specially prepared vinegared rice combined with varied ingredients.

Sushi can be prepared with either brown or white rice. It is often prepared with raw seafood, but some common varieties of sushi use cooked ingredients, and many other sorts are vegetarian.

Sushi is often confused with sashimi, a related Japanese dish consisting of thinly sliced raw fish or occasionally meat, and an optional serving of rice. Sashimi is served as slices, unlike sushi, which is served as oval-shaped rolls. The Japanese word for this roll is Maki. Which is why, at Ajian, we like to say “Maki Tide”
