    A Look at the Healthiest Fish Choices

    Last updated 15 days ago

    If you are trying to make healthier restaurant choices, you should go out for sushi. You can create a delightfully healthy meal by selecting lean varieties of fish and smart preparation methods. After your sushi experience, you’ll feel full, satisfied, and completely devoid of guilt. You’ll find the following lean, nutritious, and delicious fish at Sho Sushi Bar:

    Salmon

    Fish is known as a healthy source of protein because it is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial for heart health and cancer prevention. Salmon is one of the most omega-3-rich varieties of fish, and it is heavily featured in nigiri, sashimi, and a number of flavorful rolls.

    Oysters

    Oysters on the half shell can warm up your palate while providing your body with an immunity boost from a high concentration of zinc. Zinc is also responsible for the aphrodisiac qualities that oysters are famous for.

    Shrimp

    If you are not a fan of raw sushi, don’t fret—Sho Sushi has a number of alternatives. You can order healthy dishes featuring cooked shrimp, which is high in omega-3 acids and low in calories and mercury. That said, shrimp is relatively high in cholesterol, so you should still indulge moderately.

    Pollock

    Pollock is a type of whitefish that is most often consumed as imitation crab, a staple in the famous California Roll. Pollock is exceptionally lean and high in vitamin B12 and selenium, making it excellent for your brain health, heart health, and joints.

    If you want to try these and other healthy varieties of fish prepared at Sho Sushi Bar & Kitchen, visit us for lunch or dinner in Calgary. In addition to innovative special sushi rolls and traditional favorites, we offer an excellent selection of sake, Japanese beer, and cocktails. Call us at (403) 252-5199 if you have any questions, or visit our website to get a look at our complete menu. 

    What Are the Cooking Styles Featured in Modern Japanese Cuisine?

    Last updated 24 days ago

    When you think of Japanese restaurants, you likely imagine raw fish and vegetables; however, this is only a small part of what Japanese eateries have to offer. While raw items are often showcased in sushi, there are still many cooked items in sushi rolls, Japanese entrees, and appetizers that can please any diner at Sho Sushi Bar & Kitchen. Here is a look at some of the techniques our chefs use to create the delectable cooked items featured on our menu.

    Tempura

    Tempura is a way of quickly frying foods in a light batter. If you’ve had a tempura dish before, you’ve experienced the tasty crunch it adds to shrimp, vegetables, yam fries, and other foods. Tempura-fried items are also fairly healthy; they are not fried for long and do not absorb much oil during cooking. You can savor tempura meats and veggies on their own as an appetizer or inside tasty sushi rolls.

    Barbeque

    Japanese barbeque, much like western styles of BBQ, is centered on the delectable sauces that enhance the flavor of the meat. Sauces are characteristically both sweet and savory, and some also feature a spicy kick to further excite the palate. 

    Stir-Fry

    The wok is an essential component of the Japanese kitchen. It is used over an extremely hot stove to sear the flavorful juices into every ingredient of a stir-fry dish. Popular stir-fry dishes include chicken or salmon teriyaki, udon noodles, and chicken-fried noodles.

    At Sho Sushi Bar & Kitchen in Calgary, we always freshly prepare all menu items, whether you come in for lunch, dinner, or take-out. To explore our menu and work up an appetite for delicious Japanese fare prepared in the styles above, visit our website or call us at (403) 252-5199. We also offer catering so you can bring Sho Sushi to your next major corporate or social event.
