The Beauty of Sushi

Sushi began as a way to preserve fish by surrounding it with vinegared rice. In fact, the word sushi refers to vinegared rice and not fish, according to SushiFAQ.com.

The sushi most of us are familiar with came in the 1820s from Hanaya Yohei, a sushi chef who focused on producing a fresh seafood snack fast. Initially, sushi was a sort of early fast food. It was meant to be eaten on the go with hands, not chopsticks, according to eatsushi.com.

Sushi gained popularity in the 1980s due to Americans becoming more health conscious. Since then, it has grown and sushi bars have spread across many of America's cities. It is even a common fixture in grocery stores.
