Nigiri and Sashimi are two of the most popular types of kosher sushi preferred by people in Toronto. They are served much more simply than other types of sushi, especially the wide variety of rolls.
Nigiri is commonly referred to as ‘hand-pressed sushi’ because of how it is prepared. Chefs press fish and rice together into a mound. In many cases, they include a bit of wasabi and a topping. Those who enjoy fish that are popular in North America, such as salmon and tuna, may notice some familiar flavors, as these fish are often used with this option. In some cases, a second type of fish, often eel, squid, or octopus, is used to attach the rice. Whether this is done or not, the simplicity of the servings enable the person eating to taste the fish thoroughly with only minor flavoring from other elements of the dish.
Sashimi is popular among those who truly love the taste of fish itself. In this case, the fish is served by itself, making it easy for the kosher sushi eater to enjoy the full flavor without influence from other spices or flavorings. In general, we recommend that those who haven’t had it before give sashimi a try at some point so that they can more fully appreciate pure fish and have a better understanding of the influence of sides and seasonings. Quite often, those getting a tray with a variety of sushi will ask us to include one or two pieces of sashimi so that they can experience this pure taste while also enjoying grains and vegetables with other types.
