Masuzushi

Masuzushi

Masuzushi is a type of pressed trout sushi that has long been a Toyama specialty, with a history dating back at least to the Edo period. Raw salted trout and vinegared rice are wrapped in leaves of bamboo grass and pressed into a round wooden container called a wappa. The leaf-wrapped sushi is convenient for eating anywhere, and each masuzushi shop uses a slightly different recipe – with some sweeter, some saltier, some with a stronger vinegar flavor – so you can enjoy finding your favorite.
