Spicy Tuna Salmon Sushi Roll

The dish that we that we all know today as sushi has gone through a long history and development of food preservation from the ancient times. It originated from the paddy fields along the Mekong River in Southeast Asia. As there were no means of refrigeration, freshly caught fish was mixed with salted rice and left to ferment for up to a year. The rice was then thrown away and only the fermented fish was eaten. As sushi was introduced in Japan, the fermentation process has evolved from fish that was ready to be eaten in almost a year to just 1 month. During the 19th century, Japanese sushi makers have developed a process of placing a layer of cooked rice seasoned with vinegar alongside a layer of fish. The layers were compressed in a small wooden box for two hours, then sliced into serving pieces. The rice was not thrown away but eaten with the fish. For these reasons, sushi has always been associated with raw fish but it is actually a dish of vinegared rice served with various fillings and toppings, which may include raw fish.
