Overview

Not just delicious to eat and healthy, too, there's also something delightfully pleasing about a row of perfectly rolled sushi or a delicate arrangement of fresh fish. But though the ingredients for making sushi and sashimi at home are increasingly available, there remains the feeling that only professionals are capable of making these elegant Japanese foods successfully.

The simple truth, of course, is that these dishes are surprisingly easy to make, and your own offerings will be just as tempting as many a restaurant serving. A real part of the enjoyment of sushi and sashimi is in their preparation, presentation, and sharing with friends and family.

This book contains all the well-known sushi dishes, and some lesser-known regional specialties. Included are oshi-zushi, a simple compressed sushi with smoked salmon, nigiri-zushi, one of Tokyo's favorite street foods, and — easiest of all — instructions to show guests how to make their own hand-rolled sushi.

Preparing sashimi is just as enjoyable as making sushi. The key is to use the freshest of ingredients, and to familiarize yourself with a few basic techniques. Full descriptions are provided with each recipe, so whether you are arranging slivers of salmon or lightly marinating cubes of tuna, the results will always be impressive.

With easy-to-follow instructions and stylish photographs of each finished dish, Sensational Sushi removes the mystique from the preparation and presentation of these popular Japanese recipes.

Yasuko Fukuoka was born in Tokyo, and established herself there as a successful musician and composer.
