Sushi literally means rice specialties of fresh seafood or vegetables. The original sushi is prepared from raw seafood - tuna, salmon, squid, octopus, shrimp, crab and caviar. The secret of this unique specialty lies in the ancient history of alchemy between rice and vinegar. History of sushi began in Southeast Asia and in particular China and in VII-VIII century was brought to Japan. In the early period of its long history sushi was not exactly a dish, and technology to keep the fish, leaving it to ferment in a rice. After months, the fish was removed from the rice is consumed and the rice was discarded.Later during the Muromachi period in Japan, the rice started adding rice vinegar to taste better and to shorten the fermentation. In the following centuries in Osaka appeared so called oshi-sushi - rice and fish pressed into wooden molds. Serve reached Edo (now Tokyo) in the 18th century and early 19th century was transformed into Edo-mae sushi, which was used freshly caught fish from Edo Bay. At the time, this type of sushi was considered a cheap food available to many people. But it became such a standard sushi, which is now popular in Japan and around the world.
