Different Presentation of Sushi

Do you like Sushi? Sushi is a Japanese food made of cooked vinegared rice and other ingredients such as raw fish or other seafood. As you can see in the photo below, sushi has different presentation. The Uramaki is a contemporary style of Maki sushi. It is a roll that is inside out with the rice on the outside. It has an outer layer of sesame seeds. This was developed in the United States so that Americans will try eating sushi. Accordingly, the Western style sushi sometimes does not include raw meat. It is not on my plate though.

Now, if there is a raw meat, not necessarily seafood, sliced and served by itself it is called Sashimi. If it consists of nigiri sushi with fish topping and partly grilled and raw, it is called Roasted Sushi or Aburi Sushi.

If it consist of a rice ball and wrapped in a sheet of nori (edible seaweed) which extends in a cylinder upward to hold a loose topping such as fish eggs then, it is called Warship Roll or Gunkan-Maki. If it consist of rice and other ingredients rolled together with a sheet of nori,  it is called Rolled Sushi or Maki Sushi.

An oval-shaped ball of rice and topped with a slice of another item, it is called Nigiri Sushi or Hand-Formed Sushi. While a medium-sized rolled maki sushi that has several ingredients, it is called Medium Roll or Chu Maki.

The thick rolled maki sushi with multiple ingredients is called Futo Maki or Fat Roll. If it is thinly rolled maki sushi with one ingredient, it is called Thin Roll or Hoso Maki. While the Hand Roll or Temaki is a cone-shaped maki sushi.
