Sashimi is just the meat, served without other ingredients. Sushi also uses rice and other ingredients, such as vegetables, which are all rolled up in a sheet or nori (seaweed) and sliced into pieces. Lastly, while most sashimi is raw fish, some sashimi is not raw and some sashimi is not fish.
Can I use supermarket fish for sushi?
You specifically do not want to use fresh fish when making sushi. The difference between salmon used to make sushi and salmon at the supermarket is that salmon used to make sushi has been frozen to -20°C degrees (and held at that temperature for IIRC 120 hours).
Why sushi is so expensive?
One of the reasons why sushi is so prized is because it is very labour intensive to produce. Also, fresh and delicious sushi requires high quality fresh ingredients. Fish that is good enough to be considered ‘ sushi grade’ is very expensive and some of the finest quality fish such as tuna can cost hundreds per pound.
Why do I always crave sushi?
In general, sushi cravings can begin from a liver that is running hot and needs to be cooled down. Cucumber and seaweed are two foods to offer the liver this support. For example, if you have been eating foods that are harder to digest, such as wheat, dairy, meats, starches, and sugars, then the liver wants a time out.
