Sushi (すし、寿司, 鮨, 鮓, 寿斗, 寿し, 壽司) is a Japanese dish consisting of cooked vinegared rice which is commonly topped with other ingredients, such as fish or other seafood, or put into rolls. The main ingredients of traditional Japanese sushi, raw fish and rice, are naturally low in fat, high in protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals.
Traditionally, sushi is served on minimalist Japanese-style, geometric, mono- or duo-tone wood or lacquer plates, in keeping with the aesthetic qualities of this cuisine.While many people dip the rice side of nigirizushi into the soy sauce, traditional etiquette suggests that the sushi is turned over so that only the topping is dipped. This prevents the loosely packed rice from falling apart.
Sushi is considered to be a popular dish in many countries, such as China, USA, Germany, Great Britain and others. Japanese people tend to relish this dish on special occasions.
