Read this! don't forget to try ☺

       Maybe you already know what sushi is. Sushi is the most famous Japanese dish outside of Japan, and one of the most popular dishes among the Japanese themselves. In Japan, it's usually enjoyed on special occasions, such as a celebration. Sushi means rolled in or on top of rice. It doesn't mean raw fish like many people think. So anything in or on rice can be sushi. People like having Sushi, because it is a healthy way of eating. It uses all the foods in its natural form. The best quality in fruits and Seafood. Not to forget vegetables.
       Sushi is  one of my favorite food! So the first time I tried sushi was at a sushi night in a sushi bar. I love sushi very much. It's because the taste is good and it's very healthy, not only for body but for skin and brain either. (This is only true if the fish is extremely fresh (as it tends to be in Japan), But if it is past its prime, the sushi is not healthy at all, and this is probably the case in at least half of all sushi joints). Fish will give you your source of Omega 3 fatty acids and protein, seaweed will give you Vitamins A and C and reduce cholesterol and other fish meats such as shrimp will give you good amounts of iodine and calcium. That's why i loved sushi very much. Sushi is delicious when it done right.I like a lot of different sushi, but at the moment my favorite is maki sushi. I also like  california roll and sashimi(with no rice). The rice is too sweet for me.

Japanese Sushi

Types of maki sushi include the following:
Western Sushi
Western sushi became even more popular after World War II, when Japanese business people began to expand into the United States and Western sushi bars flourished. 

A few things that u should know about sushi :
SUSHI- means rice, not raw fish like many people think
- It means rolled in or on top of rice, so anything in or on rice can be sushi.
- Sushi is packed with lean protein, nutrients, and is low in fat. A couple of other healthy parts to sushi are the seaweed wrap, wasabi and ginger. The seaweed wrap, which is called nori, is rich with vitamins and minerals that get lost with many other kinds of foods. 
- As for wasabi and ginger, they contain antibacterial qualities and ginger also aids digestion and improves circulation.
- In Japan, it's perfectly acceptable to eat sushi with your fingers, so if you're not that good with chopsticks, you don't need to ask for a knife and fork.
