These are just some of the common accompanying ingredients, take a look below and learn more about the main different types of sushi available at Ocean Sushi!

Nigiri 

Created in the 1700s, Nigiri is a hand-pressed bunch of rice that's typically topped with some sort of seafood, like fish, clam, or crab. Nigiri generally comes in a variety of different forms.

Jumbo Maki

Makizushi is the best-known type of sushi outside of Japan, it is a type of Japanese sushi roll filled with various fillings. There are four different styles of maki: hosomaki, futomaki, uramaki and temaki. The term makizushi refers to the fact that the sushi is rolled: maki means "to roll" and zushi is the conjugated version of the word "sushi". 

Inari Sushi 

Inari sushi is a type of rice ball that is very popular in Japanese culture.

A typical Inari Sushi is made of sushi rice wrapped inside the seasoned deep-fried tofu pouches.

Cone Sushi 

Cone sushi is a variant of inarizushi originating in Hawaii, green beans, carrots, or gobo are often added along with rice, and wrapped in a triangular piece.

Hosomaki 


Hosomaki is the most basic style of makizushi, which contains just one filling, perhaps salmon, crab sticks or cucumber batons. Because there is only a thin filling, hosomaki sushi is often rolled quite tightly, creating delicate little discs.

Temaki 

Temaki sushi is distinguished by its big, nori-shaped cone. Unlike other forms of makizushi, temaki is usually eaten with the hand rather than with chopsticks. It’s the most substantial form of makizushi, but beware: the nori gets soggy really quickly, so they should be eaten straight away.

Chirashi Sushi

Chirashi is a seemingly limitless dish that you can add a collection of ingredients to, typically served in a bowl of sushi rice mixed with fish, vegetables, and other ingredients of your choice. The toppings commonly include pieces of salmon, cucumber, squid. The word “chirashi” means  "scattered sushi” and typically includes fish, sushi rice, and other toppings like mushrooms or cucumber.  

Ahi Sashimi

The more popular kinds of sashimi are salmon, tuna, octopus, and scallops.


Sashimi is a Japanese meal of thinly sliced cuts of fish and other sealife that is typically raw. Ahi tuna sashimi may be seared a bit to give it a nice and thin cooked outer layer. Ahi steak is a cut of ahi tuna filet, likely grilled or pan seared or even baked.
