When it comes to sushi, you either love it, or you hate it. There doesn’t seem to be a middle ground where sushi is concerned. However, if you are interested in trying sushi for the first time, or you are already an experienced sushi eater, there are some myths about sushi you may not be aware of. Here are some sushi myths that are not reality.
The Most Common Sushi Myths
One of the most common myths is that sushi is made up of raw fish. Actually, sushi is a presentation of rice with vegetables and seafood. Some of the seafood is cooked, such as eel, and some of the fish is smoked, such as salmon. There is some raw fish, but if you don’t want to try it, there are plenty of sushi entrees you can have instead.
Another common myth is that sushi must be consumed with soy sauce. In fact, many people don’t like to dunk their sushi in soy sauce because they feel it diminishes the flavor of the sushi. People instead want to experience the craftsman of the sushi chefs, and they prefer to do that without the soy sauce.
One of the most interesting sushi myths is regarding the California roll, which is one of the most popular sushi rolls. Many people believe that the California roll isn’t actually sushi, because it was created in a California sushi kitchen. Remember that because sushi is a rice dish first, it doesn’t matter what you put in it, or where it comes from, as long as it is delicious.
