Sushi rolls or Maki Sushi comes in several variations. Generally, it has five kinds of rolls; Temaki, Uramaki, Chumaki, Hosomaki and Futomaki. Temaki is a “hand roll” with the shape of a cone; Uramaki has an “inside-out roll”, where nori is placed on the inside and rice is on the outside; Chumaki has a “medium roll” with nori on the outside and rice on the inside; both Futomaki and Hosamaki have the same arrangement of nori and rice as Chumaki. However, Hosomaki has a “thin roll” while Futamaki has a “thick roll”.
Nigirizushi
The meaning of Nigirizushi is “hand pressed sushi”. Typically, this variety is made out of sushi rice that is formed by hand into a rectangle. A swipe of wasabi is then put on top of the rectangle and then some kind of Neta or topping is added. In most cases, the Neta is usually Tuna, Salmon or some other kind of seafood.
