Do fishmongers know what type of fish is suitable for sushi?

All fishmongers know what kind of fish is used for sushi.

It is very important to ask for fish for sushi. Fish for sushi has a completely different quality than fish to be fried.

The reason for the difference in quality of fish is that fish for sushi being eaten raw. It is very important to use top quality fish. If you eat raw fish that has become too old you may become ill.

Sushi chef pictures from 2006 in Los Angeles

I just found an old picture from the 2006 from California Sushi Academy and a picture taken last month. Toshi still were his glasses in his forehead.
In 2006, we were all terrified every 14 days because our sushi skills were tested. Toshi is also a judge at sushi competitions in Japan and he is very tough as a judge.

In the first picture, Toshi is checking how clean my chef uniform is and then he is checking how sharp my sushi knife is.

Such a skill test consisted of fillet mackerel, sahimi, nigiri test, sushi roll test and presentation. Not only did he test our skills he also took time on how long we were about to make the food.

Thank god, I became No. 2 in the final and crucial skill test.

A lot has happened since then and today I am not dying of fear.

What is the biggest challenge in learning how to make sushi?

I would like to say that cooking rice is a challenge in Denmark. The weather in Denmark changes a lot compared to other countries such as the south of France. We have 4 seasons and it is often seen that the temperature changes several times within the different seasons.

This means that it takes longer to learn how to cook sushi rice because you must be able to cook sushi to perfection in all kinds of weather all year round.

Unfortunately, the fewest ones are aware that the weather affects the amount of water for sushi, cooking time and temperature.

Kaburimaki also called insite-out offers many flavor combinations

In Europe and especially Denmark the sushi roll Kaburimaki has become a popular dish. The reason for its popularity is because you can combine several different raw materials in different ways.
With a Kaburimaki roll you can highlight the flavors and flavors of raw materials in new ways.

I am very much fond of the roll in the simple way in which fish and vegetables play the lead role. They do because I use different cutting techniques to highlight their unique taste.
