According to the Wikipedia, “sushi” means “with rice”, but in our hearts, we all know that its meaning goes a few miles further.
It means awesomeness for your mouth, raw or not, with or without rice, and sometimes it doesn’t even have to include fish. For me, sushi means “creative oriental cuisine”, and I must say that even the “oriental” bit is going away, as more and more people start experimenting with it and creating delicious awesome recipes for our delight.
