We already love sushi passionately, but did you know that, besides being incredibly tasty, sushi is also very healthy? These are some of the reasons why you should add sushi to your weekly diet.
1. Sushi helps to control your weight
There is nothing better than a delicious dinner with friends, is it? But as soon as the summer holidays are approaching, it becomes more and more difficult to control the amount of food eaten by us. Add sushi to your diet! These fantastic pieces of real art are not only tasty but can also be super healthy and have low-calorie content. Order a salad to the dish, enjoy sushi and get the right portion of healthy proteins.
Sushi and wasabi go hand in hand. But did you know that fiery spicy green paste has its own health benefits? Not only does it soften the smell of raw fish and improve its flavour, but it also kills bacteria that can cause food poisoning.
Well, really, ginger is too useful for us! Besides the fact that ginger gives sushi an incredible zest, it is also a treasure of antioxidants which help to prevent wrinkles on your skin. How do you like this replacement for expensive cosmetics?
Nori (seaweed used for sushi wrap) is filled with B12 vitamins. Therefore, sushi can be considered the best source of B12 for vegetarians. B12 is a very important nutrient that converts the food we consume into glucose used for energy. No more energy drinks: just eat sushi!
Going back in time, we find out that once sushi was as cheap as pop-corn and was considered to be fast food. But today sushi is one of the most expensive and most wanted food in the world. Filipino chef Angelito Araneta Jr. created the world's most expensive sushi which cost $4300. Let’s learn more about the most expensive sushi in the world.
Japanese cuisine has been and is still very popular all over the world. No less popular are Japanese dishes in the Philippines. Chef Angelito Araneta Jr., from a restaurant in Manila called Karat-Chef, did an extraordinary thing and succeeded.
In order to prepare the most expensive sushi in the world, the following ingredients are needed: Japanese rice, muscovado sugar, the artesian water of 70-year ageing, 12-year-old balsamic vinegar from Italy, foie gras, Norwegian salmon, mango, pickled cucumber, crab meat, wild saffron and mayonnaise with butter.
But all these ingredients are not worth a tenth of the stated price of sushi. In order to make sushi truly precious, the chef added 12 rare gems found on Palawan and 4 large African diamonds, each weighing 0.2 carats. In addition, all sushi is wrapped with an edible gold foil of 24 carats.
The most expensive chopsticks for sushi
Eating the most expensive sushi in the world with ordinary chopsticks is not convenient. For such a unique dish, special chopsticks are also needed, such as the most expensive sushi chopsticks made by the famous fashion brand Louis Vuitton.
The chopsticks are hand-made and cut from rosewood and carefully polished. The set sells 2 pairs of sushi sticks with the famous monogram Louis Vuitton - LV. Exclusive devices are sold in a case made out of expensive wood, decorated with the company golden logos. A unique set of Louis Vuitton costs $ 450.
