We all think it is right to define cream as a dairy product, rich in fat, made from animal milk. And without a doubt, it is. But this generic definition, usually falls short, when we see all the kinds of cream that can be found in the market.

In sushi it is not all raw fish and although they have no problem as long as it is properly prepared if there are people who back down on the subject of raw fish. At home, for example, they force me to make them from smoked fish or other ingredients. For example, today we are going to prepare some hosomakis of salmon, shrimp and pickled Japanese turnip.
