Sushi is my favorite food so I decided to make a post wrapped up with facts about it.

#1 Sushi is supposed to be eaten with the hands.

#2 Only the fish side of nigiri sushi should be dipped in soy sauce, not the rice.

#3 Sushi has the ability to enhance the immunity system.

#4 Wasabi was used to kill parasites.

#5 Nigiri sushi is meant to be eaten upside down.

#6 Sushi chefs train for over ten years to become a master.

#7 The spicy orange sauce you eat on sushi is just mayonnaise mixed with sriracha.

#8 The most expensive price ever for a sushi-grade bluefin tuna was $1.8 million for a 222-kilogram fish in Japan.

#9 The word sushi means “it’s sour,” which reflects back to its origins of being preserved in salt.

#10 The longest sushi roll ever created measured 2,521.74 meters (about 8,270 ft.).

#11 Sushi is not of Japanese Origin but of Southeast Asia along the Mekong River

#12 An earthquake in 1923, brought sushi (mainly a street food in Japan), to brick-and-mortars.

#13 Don’t eat nigiri in more than one bite. While eating nigiri, it is traditionally eaten whole on the first try.

#14 Ginger is meant to cleanse your palate.

#15 Sushi was once regarded as a fast food.

#16 Nearly half the fish consumed as food worldwide are raised on fish farms rather than caught in the wild, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.

#17 Popular garnishes are often made using daikon.

#18 The oldest form of sushi in Japan, narezushi, is still made by wrapping fish in soured fermenting rice, which causes the fish proteins to break down into their constituent amino acids.

#19 Unlike sashimi, which is almost always eaten with chopsticks, nigirizushi is traditionally eaten with the fingers, even in formal settings.

#20 Live scallops aren’t actually alive. That’s just the natural resiliency of the fibers in the scallop that cause it to contract and expand, making it look like it’s moving.

That wraps things up…..
