Though fairly new to seafood and largely added as a North Americanization of traditional Japanese cuisine, salmon today is featured in a wide variety of sushi dishes. In Toronto, many kosher sushi enthusiasts who have enjoyed cooked or canned salmon in the past today prefer having it served in a more Eastern style.
One of the reasons that salmon is so popular, especially among those who enjoy sushi, is that is has considerable health benefits that complement those provided by other ingredients in kosher sushi. It contains high concentrations of vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for brain health and can help to prevent strokes and heart disease. Other of its amino acids can also help to accelerate muscle repair, which is important for everyone but especially for athletes.
Sake features in many different rolls as well as being served in nigiri. It can be smoked, spicy, or pure, and is sometimes served with tuna. Other ingredients that are often served with salmon include onions, both in marinated and dressing form, mango, cream cheese, avocado, and even cilantro and jalapenos. This diversity means that you could get a healthy serving of salmon and all of its health benefits while still enjoying several different flavors within a single meal.
In terms of condiments, sake is often served with wasabi and/or salt. Because it is quite oily, it is often difficult to eat in nigiri form with soy sauce, which is repelled by the oils.
