Sushi vs. Sashimi

Difference Between Sushi And Sashimi

Both sushi and sashimi are Japanese special dishes. The sushi is a dish made of rice, with the addition of raw fish and vegetables. The sashimi is made up almost exclusively of raw fish, which can be served topped with other ingredients.

In Japan the word Sushi refers to a wide range of dishes that have cooked rice as their main ingredient. They are usually seasoned with vinegar , sugar and salt and with the addition of a filling  of algae, plant or eggs. The different names to the dishes are given according to the choice of filling of ingredients and according to the way different ingredients are combined.

The Sashimi is simply a plate-based  shellfish or a kind of raw fish cut into thin slices. It is usually taken with a little soy sauce, wasabi or sauce ponzu.  It has a strong taste, but at the same time it is delicate.
