Different types of sushi ready to be eaten.

Etymology[edit]

From Japanese 寿司 (sushi, sushi (sour rice)), ultimately from 酸し (sushi, 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 raw fish, vegetables or meat.
    For the vegetarians, she served cucumber sushi.
  2. (proscribed) Raw fish as it is known in association with sushi. (Can we verify(+) this sense?)
    • 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]

Though the primary ingredient is flavored rice, non-Japanese individuals often often mistakingly assume that the defining component is raw fish. When raw slices of fish (or other meats) are served without rice as a separate dish, it is known as sashimi. [1]
