With kosher going gourmet in recent years, sushi has become de rigueur at upscale restaurants and take out shops. Kosher customers today expect a higher level of quality and a broader selection than when kosher dining meant bagels and lox, and sushi is a standard that defines fine kosher food. Plus, with the myriad of options often available, you can often choose lox and cream cheese for your roll.

What is Kosher Sushi?
For decades, sushi was a gourmet food of another class, cuisine that was known as one of “those foods,” which kosher consumers could only admire from afar. In the past decade or so, sushi has exploded onto the kosher scene as savvy restaurateurs have made it kosher-accessible.
Most sushi rolls are made from a combination of fresh, uncooked fish, fresh vegetables and prepared sushi rice. Along with the proliferation of sushi among kosher establishments has come the penchant to invent unique and interesting combination using other ingredients such as fruits, “crunchies,” and cooked vegetables.
Each ingredient used in the process must have kosher certification and must be prepared with a kosher process. The fish used must have both fins and scales and must be cut with a clean knife that has not cut non-kosher fish. All raw rice is kosher, but it must be cooked in a pot that has been used for strictly kosher foods. Fruits and vegetables must be cut with a clean knife that has only been used for kosher.
Many Types to Suit Many Tastes
Would you like some cream cheese with your salmon? Skip the bagel, get a roll. A sushi roll, that is. You can choose sushi rolls with only fish, only vegetables, or a combo. You can stick with your traditional California roll or go daring with mango, peanuts or hot chili peppers. As long as it’s kosher, it can find its way into your sushi.
The most popular fish for sushi are salmon and tuna, but there are many other kosher species as well, such as yellow tail and whitefish.
Aroma retains ORB kosher supervision to ensure that our sushi meets the strictest kashruth requirements. Our supervisors check which fish come in, the knives are kept separate for sushi making only, and all other preparatory instruments such as steamers, pots and peelers are used only for sushi preparation.
