Popular Japanese Dish
Sushi roll is a popular Japanese dish that wraps cooked rice and seafood in seaweed. There are many different types of sushi rolls, but they all share a few key ingredients:
- Short-grain rice that has been cooked in vinegar and sugar is known as sushi rice. It gives the rice a slightly sweet flavor and sticky texture that is perfect for rolling.
- Seafood is a common ingredient in sushi rolls. Popular choices include tuna, salmon, and eel.
- Sushi rolls are wrapped in nori, a type of edible seaweed.
Nori is usually toasted before its use, giving it a crispy texture that contrasts nicely with the soft rice and seafood. Sushi rolls can enjoy as an appetizer or main course, and they are often served with soy sauce and wasabi for dipping.
