This dish comes in the form of an oblong mound, which is pressed between the palms. It contains a bit of wasabi, alongside various toppings sprinkled over it.

This dish comes in the form of a cylindrical piece, formatted with a bamboo mat. In most cases, it is wrapped in nori, cucumber, parsley, soy paper and thin omelet. Makizushi is considered as one of the most popular choices for Sushi deliveries.
Although this is a type of maki, it is substantially different from other maki kinds. The biggest difference is that the nori is inside, while the rice is on the outside. The filling is usually in the center of the dish, surrounded by a layer of rice and the nori. Also, there is also an outer coating, which is commonly made from ingredients such as toasted sesame seeds. Various types of Uramaki may also contain avocado, carrots, meat, cucumbers, mayonnaise and more.
This dish is very suitable for office or home Sushi deliveries. Its form is nothing more than an oval-shaped clump of Sushi, with nori wrapped around it. This dish was first introduced in the early 1930’s, and since then it has spread to all corners of the world.
Why opt for Sushi?
To answer this question, we will just cover the main ingredients of nearly every Sushi dish.
Seafood and fish
Since it is mainly based on fish and seafood, Sushi is very low in calories. Fish commonly used for Sushi, like the red snapper or sea bass, contain less than 100 calories per 100 grams. Some fish like mackerel, tuna or eel, contain 200 calories per 100 grams, which is still a low number. Also, oily fish like sardine, mackerel or herring are known for their high levels of omega-3 acids, which are very good for the heart and the cardiovascular system.
Rice is a great source of protein, as well as carbohydrates. It is also gluten-free, which makes it perfect for people who are allergic to wheat.
Nori is a seaweed, which contains high concentrations of vitamins B1, B2, B6, A and C. It is also highly nutritious and contains niacin, as well as lots of minerals and proteins.
Rice vinegar is mostly used to preserve the food effectively. However, it is also notable for its antibacterial properties and its effectiveness at aiding digestion and maintaining a balanced blood pressure.
