To begin, let’s be clear to the fact that sushi does not mean raw fish but pertains to a dish that consists of rolled rice that was seasoned with vinegar which is served with different fillings and toppings that include raw fish. However, during ancient times, sushi was meant for preservation when it was invented. Preservation is the method used by our ancestors since time immemorial to keep the food from spoilage and be stored for later use. In the case of sushi, rice is fermented to be used for storing the fish for about a year. When it’s time to consume the fish, the rice is discarded and only the fish is left to eat. However, during the 16th century, a variant of sushi was invented which is called namanarezushithat introduced vinegar to the rice. From the purpose of preserving, sushi has evolved into a variant that involves adding vinegar to the rice so that it no longer is thrown away but was eaten together with the fish. This has now become the sushi we know and eat today.
