In Japan, sushi is any dish that is made up of vinegared rice together with other ingredients such as fish and vegetables. There is a misconception that sushi refers to raw fish, which is in fact called sashimi. Sushi rice wrapped in nori (seaweed) is Sushi roll or referred to as Maki sushi.
The seafood and vegetable elements bring different colors to this dish that make it delicious even just by looking at it. There are many variations with the ingredients that can be used and also the patterns that can be formed in the sushi roll. But no matter what shape or design, this dish still remains a unique Japanese tradition that is easier to prepare than you think.
