Japanese cuisine toppings

Japanese cuisine toppings

If there is one dish par excellence in Japanese cuisine with the largest number of followers worldwide, it is undoubtedly sushi. Nowadays in Spain, there are many lovers of this gastronomy who go to the best restaurants in our country to try different varieties of sushi, and there are also many who are increasingly encouraged to prepare it at home. The ingredients? White rice or Japanese sumeshi rice, which is usually sweet and short-grained; nori seaweed, rice vinegar, sugar and salt for the seasoning, and rice wine or mirin (sake).

But if there is one ingredient that allows you to create a wide range of sushi varieties, it is the topping. In Oriental Market we have a wide range of toppings that can be used for the preparation of sushi, some of the most outstanding are the following:

  • Salmon topping: in our shop, we have trays of laminated salmon (20 units per tray), with an excellent pink colour and of the highest quality. Salmon is one of the star toppings for sushi and also for sashimi, the brother of sushi and which in many gastronomic spaces usually go hand in hand.
  • Chicharro topping: the chicharro, horse mackerel or bunting is a type of blue fish that is ideal for the preparation of sushi. A fish that in Western culture is usually prepared fried, but in Japanese cuisine it is presented as a topping for this type of recipe. In our shop, the horse mackerel can be found in trays of 8 sliced pieces.
  • Cuttlefish in slices: an excellent option for the preparation of this type of recipe (sushi or sashimi) is the use of cuttlefish, offering a different flavour to traditional toppings, and at Oriental Market we have trays of sliced cuttlefish (25 units).

And it doesn’t end here, in our shop you will find other varieties of toppings such as sillago, sliced tilapia, prawns or even sliced octopus, among others. How do you see it?
