Do you know that sushi caught on originally as a cheap, quick snack to eat with the hands while enjoying a theater performance? And now, it has involved to be a premium specialty dish around the world.
The original type of sushi, known today as nare-zushi was first made in Southeast Asia, maybe along what is also known as the Mekong River (Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, Burma, Laos).
Even fresh sushi is frozen first. Food safety regulations in the US and Europe require that raw fish be frozen for a certain amount of time to kill parasites.
In Europe, raw fish must have been frozen at -20 degrees Celsius for at least 24 hours. Even the freshest raw fish served in Western sushi restaurants has been frozen, which damages the original taste and texture.
Japanese sushi masters are trained to recognize potential problems such as flukes and parasites in fish and avoid serving them.
