Contrary to popular belief, sushi is not all raw fish. In America, there is a popular misconception that sushi equals raw fish. Although some sushi combinations use raw fish, there are many others that use an array of ingredients ranging from cooked fish to vegetables.
Sushi actually is characterized by a slightly sweet, sticky rice, made with a sweet vinegar and rice combination, usually lined with seaweed or kelp, called nori, and then the ingredients are placed in the center and the rice and seaweed are wrapped around the ingredients into a cylindrical roll. Once the sushi is rolled, it can be cut into the familiar circles served in restaurants and stores in America.
Some possible ingredients for a sushi include fish (cooked, steamed, raw or cured), seafood, and both raw and steamed vegetables. In America, other ingredients can be found in restaurants including pieces of beef, avocado, pickles, pimento, cheeses and more.
