How to tell if your sushi is seaweed, or is made from seaweed?
It’s a question many sushi aficionados have struggled with for decades.
In recent years, chefs have been making sushi that looks, tastes and feels like a traditional Japanese sushi dish, but with seaweeds.
A new method has emerged that is less complicated to make, but also less satisfying.
Here are three ways to tell the difference.
First, a few words about the ingredients.
A sushi rice and seaweed mixture contains about 80% seaweed and 15% rice, according to sushi expert and author, Tomi Ohara, who also has the blog, sushi-the-best.
“There are three main types of seaweed that are used in sushi: albacore tuna, red snapper and sea urchin,” she said.
Albacores are the main ingredient, while red snappers are used as filler.
“Red snapper is usually cooked for several hours at a high temperature, which can make it a bit bland,” she explained.
Sea urchins are the smallest, most tender parts of the seaweed.
“It’s also quite fatty, so it tends to stick to your teeth,” Ohara said.
“These are also the most affordable.”
The rice can be a mix of rice, seaweed flakes or even the same rice or seaweeds used in a regular sushi roll, according in the article.

Second, the color.
Algae, which is a plant with a bright yellow and red color, are used to make sushi, and are usually white, green or pink, according The Huffington Post.
A more traditional sushi roll might use the same ingredients, but instead of a yellow and green color, it might be black.
The most expensive sushi rolls can also be made from red snapping or red snouts, and the most expensive albacs can be made using red snout.
But albacon and albite are not seaweeds.
So if you’re buying sushi, you should look for a traditional roll that is made using albaco, according the Huffington Post article.
Third, the amount of fish in the fish.
A typical sushi roll will have about 30% fish, with the remaining 10% of the fish being sushi rice, which includes sea ursa and sea bass, according Oishi’s website.

So, which one is your sushi?
The key to making the right sushi, however, is to make sure you get what you pay for.
If you’re looking for a sushi roll that costs a few hundred yen, you might be better off choosing a more expensive roll made from a fish that’s not albaccino.
But if you want a sushi that’s a bit more affordable, you’ll want to stick with a sushi made with sea urse or albacere.
