Nigiri translates to 'two fingers' and consists of hand pressed vinegared rice shaped into an elongated ball with a topping draped over it. Japanese Mackerel (Saba) has an oily texture and meaty flavour. It can be considered 'fishy' to some as the flavour can be strong. Grilling (Yaki) reduces some of the oiliness. Enjoy Yaki Saba Nigiri balanced with spring onions and grated ginger.
