About Fubuki Sushi
What does Fubuki mean?
The Japanese word Fubuki translates into Snowstorm or blizzard
in english. And so, in honor of the snow gods.. we have
humbly named our venture "Snowstorm" Sushi.
While many believe sushi is raw fish, it's
important to note that sushi doesn't even have to contain
fish at all. Granted, fish and seafood, especially raw
or cured fish, is one of the most popular ingredients in
sushi, but it is not necessary.
Sushi actually is characterized by a slightly sweet, sticky
rice, made with a sweet vinegar and rice combination, usually
lined with seaweed or kelp, called nori, and then the ingredients
are placed in the center and the rice and seaweed are wrapped
around the ingredients into a cylindrical roll. Once the
sushi is rolled, it can be cut into the familiar circles
Some possible ingredients for a sushi include
fish (cooked, steamed, raw or cured), seafood, and both raw
and steamed vegetables. In North America, other ingredients
can be found in restaurants including pieces of beef, avocado,
pickles, pimento, cheeses and more.
As you can see, while
sushi can contain raw fish, sushi itself is not actually
raw fish. Once you realize this, you can probably find a
sushi version to suit your tastes and sample real sushi,
without worrying about eating raw fish (sashimi).
