Japan is famous for its favorite dish, sushi, but it is no longer confined to the Japanese only, as sushi shops are now spread all over the world and many people love it, but some still think that it is just raw fish and they cannot eat it. Every year on June 18, the world celebrates International Sushi Day in an effort to raise awareness of the facts and myths surrounding this delicious dish.

Sushi History

This delicious dish brings us back to Southeast Asia, where fish was stored by wrapping it in salted and fermented rice to remain valid for several months. When eating, the rice was discarded and only fish is consumed. Then, sushi changed from a method of preserving fish to a new form of food prepared using partially raw fish.

As for the traditional form of sushi we know today consisting of fish and vegetables wrapped with rice, it appeared in the Edo period, between 1600 and 1800 AD in Japan. If you don't prefer eating raw fish, you can still enjoy sushi, as there are many types that are prepared using fully cooked ingredients.
