What is the most important ingredient of sushi? Most people would say the fish but this is not correct.
Quite simply is the SUSHI RICE.
Many Japanese restaurants like to promote the variety, quality and freshness of their fish. In fact, what is most promoted with images in restaurants are the fish, shrimp, crab and other seafood. But the truth is without good quality sushi rice the end product will not produce quality sushi.
Rice must be prepared correctly with the right amount of ingredients to produce “sushi rice”. Perfect balance of mild vinegar and a hint of sweetness make the perfect sushi rice. The flavour of the fish must not overpower the fish and the flavour of the fish must not overpower the rice.
