If you happen to visit Japan, do not forget to try out an authentic Japanese Sushi from Ginza in Tokyo.
Delicious!!! Oishi!!! Try Them All!!!
When I visited Japan last September 2011 for a business trip, we ate 4 platters of sushi…
Did you know that? The main ingredients of traditional Japanese sushi, raw fish and rice, are naturally low in fat, high in protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals.
Most seafood is naturally low in fat, with fats found in seafood predominately being unsaturated and thus containing relatively high levels of Omega-3. Vitamins and minerals are found in much of the seafood and vegetables used for sushi. The nutritional content is dependent on the ingredients used. For example, shrimp is high in calcium and iodine, whereas salmon is rich in Vitamin D. The gari (sweet, pickled ginger) and nori (the black seaweed wrapper) used to make sushi are rich in both nutrients. Other vegetables wrapped within the sushi also offer various vitamins and minerals. While Carbohydrates are found in the rice and vegestables.
And the true wasabi has an anti-microbial properties and may reduce the risk of food poisoning.
