Try Original Oshi SushiOshi sushi is a type of sushi that is far less common in the United States than the sushi commonly found in a sushi bar or sushi house, such as sushi maki. This sushi, also known as oishi sushi or sushi by yoshi, is different in the way it is made, which is through pressing! Pressed sushi can be made much more quickly and more creatively, making it a favorite among the fast food style sushi restaurant industry. However, with a little time and effort, these dishes can actually be a lot more class than boring, run of the mill sushi rolls. Mackerel sushi, also known as battera sushi, for example is a popular choice. Look on any high class sushi menu, and this delicious dish, consisting of aspidistra leaves, gizzard shad, and salted mackerel will likely be there. This sushi has a particularly long shelf life and a strong taste that is definitely not for everyone. Those who enjoy it, however, tend to absolutely love it. There is no middle ground with this unique type of sushi. Another popular type of oshi sushi is Bozushi, which in English, roughly translates to stick sushi. This sushi is made for dipping, usually in sushi wasabi, and can be equated to a type of Japanese finger food. The sushi is pressed into a long, thin shape and cut up in tiny pieces ideal for eating as a snack or just as a casual but still delicious meal. Hazushi is another type of oshi sushi, and it is one that is particularly healthy. The health benefits come from the green plant leaves, rice, and healthy, raw fish toppings that this type of sushi contains. Plus, for all its healthfulness, it is also quite tasty. This sushi is also similar to hakozushi or 'box' sushi, as it is more commonly called. The only difference between the two is the shape. Box sushi is, as one might guess, cut into square or rectangle shapes.
