The offer of Japanese food is increasing in Spain, especially in Madrid, with recent additions that the ABC food critic, Carlos Maribona, has given a good account of. Every June 18 International Sushi Day is celebrated, a conceptual definition that includes snacks such as 'nigiri', 'maki', 'uramaki', 'temaki', 'oshi', 'hosomaki', 'temari', ' futomaki', 'gunkan' or 'inari', among other preparations that have fish and rice as their two main ingredients –although not the only ones–. The mastery of 'itamae' or 'sushiman', as it has been popularly translated, lies in achieving the perfect point of the rice, the cut of the fish, the shape and the always subtle dressing that closes it. An important key is the temperature, a symptom of whether or not it is done at the moment.
It should never be refrigerated. In this list you can find some of the best restaurants in Spain where you can eat this Japanese delicacy.
