Nutritional values

The Japanese classic hors d'oeuvre is just the thing for everyone who is looking for a low-fat diet and still does not want to do without valuable omega-3 fatty acids. These polyunsaturated fatty acids are mainly found in fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel and herring and protect the blood vessels.

Since the Japanese feast for the eyes and palate tends to be low in fibre, you should opt for fibre-rich recipes for your other daily meals - perhaps for a fresh cereal for breakfast. Or serve a raw vegetable salad (e.g. made from finely chopped carrots and radish) with the sushi cake.
