The Best Sushi in Cary NC
Sushi is a traditional Japanese dish, which is composed of rice, meats, fruits, and vegetables served cold. It originated in Southeast Asia, known as today dish, narezushi, which contained rice and fish that were fermented and salted. The fish was wrapped in the rice to prevent it from spoiling, the rice was not traditionally consumed. Vinegar was added to help with the preservation as well as to enhance the taste. As for the shape, bamboo wooden molds were used to create the wrapped dish. This sour tasting dish became a staple for protein in the culture and still is consumed even though it has modernized. Today, less fermentation and vinegar is used, as we have easy access to refrigeration, and it lightens up the taste, making it servable to a larger population of tastes. More filling ingredients, toppings, and sides or sauces are used, as there are now several varieties of sushi that are commonly served.
