Different types of sushi ready to be eaten.

EtymologyEdit

Borrowed from Japanese 寿 () () (sushi, sushi (sour rice)), ultimately from archaic conjugation  () (sushi, sour, vinegared) of modern adjective  () (sui, sour, vinegared).

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

sushi (usually uncountable, plural sushis)

  1. A Japanese dish made of small portions of sticky white rice flavored with vinegar, usually wrapped in seaweed and filled or topped with fish, vegetables or meat.
    For the vegetarians, she served cucumber sushi.
  2. (proscribed) Raw fish, especially as a Japanese dish.
    • 2012, Alison Acheson, Molly's Cue, page 26:
      'Can't eat sushi?' I said. Then Mom said, 'You can't eat uncooked fish when you're pregnant' as if I'm the one stupid enough to go and get pregnant!

Usage notesEdit

Though the primary ingredient of Japanese sushi is flavored rice, non-Japanese people often assume that the defining component is raw fish, and occasionally use "sushi" to mean "raw fish". Raw slices of fish (or other meats) served without rice are properly called sashimi.[1]
