Hi. This is Nozomi from Ten Sushi.

What is Nigiri? 🍣

Nigiri is freshly caught raw fish on top of a small ball of sushi rice. Sushi rice is not just regular cooked rice. It is made with Japanese short-grain sticky rice flavored with vinegar, sugar and salt. 🍚🧂

Vinegar and sugar prevent rice from getting too hard once it gets cold. Sushi rice’s best temperature is body temperature. Not too hot or not too cold. 🌡

In Japan if you go to a sushi restaurant, sushi is served with wasabi between the fish and rice. But here in America wasabi is usually served on the side. 😮

Do you know why wasabi is served with sushi?? 🙋‍♀️

Wasabi helps to soften the fishy smell of the raw fish and prevent food poisoning. 🐡

By the way I don’t really like wasabi… I tried so many times but I couldn’t like it. 😢 “Can I have sushi without wasabi please? Thank you.” 😊 If you go to eat sushi in Japan, and don’t want to eat wasabi please be careful. ⚠🥵

I hope you found this blog helpful and hope to see you soon! 😉
