Day 292/365: Manila Maki, A Japanese-Filipino Fusion
Maki sushi comes in several varieties, depending on how thick the roll is and how the roll is constructed. The most common form is hosomaki, or thin rolls. Thin rolls are made by making a small strip of sushi rice and one or two ingredients along one edge of a sheet of nori and then rolling it up tightly to form a slender roll. Hosomaki is cut into small pieces before serving, and is usually served on a platter with several other types of sushi for contrast. Common hosomaki types include cucumber rolls, carrot rolls, and tuna rolls.
