Today, June 18th, is International Sushi Day!
This “holiday” was first celebrated on June 18th, 2009, created by the administrator of the “Sushi” Facebook page, Chris DeMay.
Sushi day celebrations like this one can be celebrated any way you like. Just one requirement… enjoy sushi! I’ve seen many social gatherings pop up during which participants roll their own sushi, or create an appetizing sashimi dish.
Some of my favorite sushi rolls include a Philadelphia (or Bagel) roll which consists of Smoked Salmon cream cheese. Some of my favorite sushi places add in avocado in the roll too. Another favorite is a Shrimp Tempura roll and Shrimp and Shitake (mushrooms) roll.
What sushi do you enjoy?
