What is the benefit of eating sushi rolls?

One of the biggest advantages of sushi rolls is the unique taste experience they offer.
Each sushi roll is like a small work of art with a harmonious combination of taste and texture.
From the fresh fish to the carefully prepared rice and crisp vegetables, every bite gives you an exciting experience.

Sushi rolls are not only a delicious meal, but they can also be a healthy part of your diet. Fish used in sushi rolls such as salmon and tuna are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial for the body.

Another advantage of sushi rolls is the endless variety and possibility of customization. From classic rolls such as California Roll and Sushi roll with salmon to more experimental combinations, sushi rolls can be adapted to suit every taste.

Whether you are vegetarian, vegan or have specific dietary requirements, there is always a sushi roll that suits you.

Therefore, Japanese sushi seaweed is so healthy!

Most people have heard that eating seaweeds are healthy. And that’s it.
There are more and more companies that sells seaweed to consumers.

However, I am a little skeptical.
It does matter where the seaweed are picked. There are areas that are contaminated.

Therefore, I continue to eat seaweed Nori for sushi.
Seaweed for sushi is grown as oats grow on a Danish soil. That’s why I know that the quality is okay.

In addition, sushi seaweed is the vegetable in the world that contains most minerals and vitamins.

At Sushi course for beginners I talk a lot more about seaweed.

How much fish is eaten in Japan?


Japan is known for its love of seafood, which plays a central role in the country’s culture and Japanese cuisine.

According to statistics, the Japanese consume about 50-60 kg of fish and shellfish per person per year. This is much more compared to the global average of around 20 kg per person per year.
Fish is an essential part of the Japanese diet, and many Japanese dishes, such as sushi, sashimi, tempura, and takoyaki, have fish or shellfish as the main ingredient.

Japan’s extensive coastline and its tradition of fishing have allowed fish to become an integral part of the everyday diet.

Sushi is undoubtedly one of the most iconic Japanese dishes globally, and it is based on fresh seafood. This dish originates from an old preservation method where fish was preserved in fermented rice. Today, sushi is a culinary dish where the quality and freshness of the fish is paramount.

On the Sushi course for beginners, you learn step by step how to make tasty sushi. I also reveal how to cook sushi rice to perfection, every single time.

When is pink sea bream eaten in Japan?

Sushi chef & sake sommerlier Zoë Escher
In Japan, pink sea bream or Sakura-Dai is a seasonal fish that is often eaten in the spring.

It is especially popular when the cherry trees are in bloom, which usually happens in late March to April, depending on the region.
This is a time when Japanese restaurants and homes often serve Sakura-Dai, a delicacy that perfectly matches the festive mood and beauty of the cherry blossoms. So if you want to taste this delicate fish, spring is the best time of the year to do it.

The fish’s pink color and mild taste make it suitable for a wide range of dishes.
Sakura-Dai is often used for sushi and sashimi, where its delicate flavor and fine texture can be fully enjoyed. It can also be grilled, steamed or fried, and served as a main course with rice and vegetables.

Sometimes it is also prepared in a clear soup or included in various stews. No matter how it is prepared, Sakura-Dai adds a subtle flavor and a nice color to any meal.

Get your daily vegetables through sushi

Sushi Chef & Sake Sommelier
By eating sushi, you can easily meet your need for 600 grams of vegetables per day.

Most sushi rolls are packed with various vitamins and minerals. There are two types of sushi rolls that I have in mind here. One sushi roll is insite-out, where the sushi roll is covered with rice and the filling itself and the sushi seaweed are inside the roll. The other sushi roll is the large futomaki, which often contains several different vegetables.

In addition to the classic vegetables such as cucumber and avocado, the two sushi rolls often contain other vegetables such as pickled red onion, mango, spring onion, Jerusalem artichoke and sugar snap peas.
Depending on which sushi rolls you choose, you can almost cover the entire food pyramid during a sushi meal.

Another important and indispensable vegetable for sushi is nori seaweed. Not many people are aware of this, it is the vegetable in the world that contains the most vitamins and minerals. This applies to all types of seaweed sushi.

You need only a few tasty sushi rolls before you reach 600 grams of vegetables.
I have taught sushi and held pop-up sushi dinners and my impression is that most people eat around 900-1200 grams of vegetables during a sushi meal.

On the Sushi course for beginners, you learn step by step how to make tasty sushi that is boosted with vitamins and minerals. Tasty pieces of sushi that are suitable for everyday use and parties.

How did sushi originate?


Sushi, one of Japan’s most iconic dishes, has an exciting history behind it.
Sushi was originally developed in Southeast Asia as a method of preserving fish in salt and rice. This cooking method spread to Japan around the 8th century.

The earliest form of sushi, called narezushi, consisted of fermented fish and rice, which were buried in fermentation tanks for several months to achieve the desired flavor.

During the Edo period from 1603 to 1868 in Japan, sushi began to develop into the form we know today. A significant change was the discovery of vinegar, which made it possible to ferment rice faster and more efficiently. This development made it possible to make nigiri sushi, where raw fish was placed on a lump of rice and served fresh.

Since then, sushi has evolved significantly, with different regional variations and modern twists. Today, sushi is enjoyed all over the world as a delicacy that combines freshness, art and taste in a unique way.
