Chirashizushi

Chirashizushi - (Sacttered Sushi) You're not apt to find a bowl like this one on the menu of your local sushi bar... Unless local for you is in Japan, where every corner sushi shop can and will prepare this hearty treat. Here's a bowl of perfectly prepared sushi rice covered with hotate-gai, uni, ika, and kani. (scallops, sea urchin, squid, and crab) just waiting for you to dive in. But doubtless you can order *your* favorites to top chirashizushi on your next trip to Japan. And you don't let the pinky waving sushi purists get you down. You know the best sushi is eating what you like...not because some food writer and part-time art critic said it was fashionable. Get those chopsticks busy and enjoy!
