What is a Maki?

Maki is a type of sushi roll that is made by wrapping sushi rice and a variety of fillings in a sheet of seaweed. The seaweed used in making maki is called nori, which is dried and flattened sheets of edible seaweed. The fillings in maki can be almost anything, ranging from fish and seafood to vegetables. Maki is typically served with soy sauce, wasabi, and pickled ginger. Maki is not only delicious but also visually stunning, making it a perfect dish for entertaining guests or special occasions.

At the Fish Society, there's a special place in our hearts for the perfect maki roll. Our favorite recipe features our amazing super-frozen tuna maguro, complemented by a thin layer of wasabi and a delicious slice of ripe avocado. This combination results in a fine bite that has quickly become a go-to snack for Alistair, ever since we introduced our sashimi range.

What should you put inside a maki?

The fillings for maki can be almost anything, but common options include fish (such as tuna, salmon, or shrimp), vegetables (such as avocado, cucumber, or carrot), and condiments (such as wasabi, soy sauce, or pickled ginger). Maki rolls are often served with additional sauces or toppings, such as spicy mayo or sesame seeds. The ingredients used in maki can vary greatly depending on the chef's preferences and the availability of ingredients.
