【英語】Kaisendon : 海鮮丼は握り寿司とはちょっと異なる鮮魚の楽しみ

“Kaisendon” : A bowl of rice topped with “Sashimi”

Both sushi and “Kaisendon” have the same concept in common – combination of fresh seafood with rice.

But, “Kaisendon” is a slightly different way of enjoying fresh raw seafood.
お寿司と海鮮丼は共に、新鮮な魚介とご飯の組み合せを楽しむ料理。しかし、海鮮丼は通常のお寿司とは少し違った鮮魚の楽しみ方。

 

Unlike regular sushi, which is arranged by sushi professionals using vinegared sushi rice, “Kaisendon” is prepared with regular plain rice. Variety of seafood placed colorfully on the top of a bowl of rice, rather casually – that is “Kaisendon”.  Very simple, right?

通常のお寿司は酢飯で作られますが、海鮮丼は普通のご飯が使われます。どんぶりご飯の上に様々な刺身を色鮮やかに飾り付ける、それが海鮮丼です。

 

A typical “Kaisendon” holds various seafood on the top, mostly fresh raw “Sashimi”, as seen in the picture below – tuna, sea bream, and all other kinds of fish, shrimps, octopus, squid, and others. “Ikura” (salmon roe)and “Uni” (sea urchin) are often added to expand tastes.
