When you go to a sushi restaurant, you want to make sure you are getting not only a fantastic dining experience, but also that you are getting the freshest, most authentic seafood possible. Here is a short guide to some of the common fish and seafood that are used in authentic sushi:
Tuna. One of the most popular sushi dishes is the spicy tuna roll, which is made of fresh tuna, rice, mayonnaise, and togarashi. Tuna can prevent blood clots and strokes, as well as reduce the risk of skin cancer and inflammation.

Salmon. This is one of the healthiest fish that you can integrate into your diet. Salmon is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E, and can also aid in muscle repair.
Yellowtail. The yellowtail is classified as a “luxury fish,” and has a very rich, delicious taste. When prepared in sushi, it has a bold and sweet aftertaste.

Eel. Since eel is never eaten raw, it is cooked when prepared in any sushi dish. Eel meat that is prepared properly should be soft, flaky, and fluffy, not to mention tasty.
Squid. This type of seafood is much chewier than other types of fish, and the more you chew it, the more flavor you taste.
Crab. When preparing many sushi rolls, such as a California roll, crab is generally the most popular meat. Crab is both flavorful and light, and balances perfectly with the avocado, cucumber, and rice in California rolls.
