Different types of sushi ready to be eaten.

Etymology edit

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

Pronunciation edit

Noun edit

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.
    • 1985, Leora Barish, Desperately Seeking Susan, spoken by Taxi Driver:
      I lived in New York all my life. We used to have Chinese restaurants, ltalian restaurants. Now you have these sushi restaurants. Everyone goes for sushi. Sushi—I hate the stuff. Although, I tell you, I had some the other day. I took it home, I cooked it, it wasn't bad. It tasted like fish.
  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 notes edit

  • Some non-Japanese people assume the defining component of sushi is raw fish, and occasionally use "sushi" to mean "raw fish". Raw slices of fish (or other meats) served without rice are properly termed sashimi.[1]
  • The collective plural of sushi is generally sushi. When referring to two or more types of sushi or to multiple instances of sushi the plural is sushis.
