    Have you ever eaten at a sushi restaurant? You may have noticed a little more than what you ordered on your plate. When you order sushi, sashimi, or sushi rolls, you will receive a few accompanying items to make your meal as enjoyable as possible. This includes wasabi, soy sauce, and ginger. Use this guide to learn more about ginger before your next sushi meal:

    What is Ginger?

    When you see ginger on your plate in a sushi restaurant, you will probably see think, pink slices that have a shiny or wet appearance. But this is not how ginger always looks! Ginger is a root vegetable, meaning a plant produces the roots, which are then used in cooking as vegetables. This ingredient can be found in many different forms and is used in a wide variety of foods and drinks. Ginger is believed to offer a number of health benefits, a fact that has only increased its popularity.

    How is Ginger Prepared for Sushi?

    While ginger exists in many different forms, it is found in a pickled version when dining at sushi restaurants. This type of ginger, called sushi ginger or gari, is made from young ginger to provide the right taste and texture for diners. The ginger is first peeled and then sliced as thinly as possible. The slices are then placed in a mixture of vinegar and sugar and left to sit for a few hours. After this, the ginger slices are drained and served on the side of sushi dishes.   

    How Should Diners Use Ginger?

    Ginger is served as a palate cleanser for diners eating multiple types of fish or other sushi dishes. When you finish on type of sushi, gently pick up a piece of ginger with your chopsticks and eat it to wash away any leftover taste. This will allow you to experience the full taste of your next type of sushi.

    Sho Sushi offers a variety of tasty sushi, sashimi, and rolls. Give us a call at (403) 252-5199 for information about our new sushi place in Calgary.
