Traditional Sushi was simply salted fish, wrapped in fermented rice. First developed in Southeast Asia, this simple yet delicious cuisine spread quickly into Southern China and then, by the 8th century, into Japan.
Sushi literally means ëitís sourí. Why? Because Sushi was traditionally preserved in salt. Sushi is vinegared rice topped with other ingredients, unlike Sashimi, which is slices of raw fish served on their own. Sashimi is simply not Sushi, because itís not served with rice!
The Sushi you will most likely know, and love is Nigirizushi. A more modern form of Sushi, that began with the Japanese chef Hanaya Yohei in 1824. His methods not only proved faster to produce, providing far more choice more quickly, but they also improved the flavours.
