What is an avocado?
Check out our Sushi Pizza (What?!) video
Avocado is one of the most common fruits used in sushi. It is cholesterol free, and blends perfectly with the look and feel of the sushi roll. Because of its natural “fatty” taste and feel, the avocado is an ideal substitute for the raw fish commonly used in sushi.
The best kind of avocado to use in sushi is, in our opinion, is the Hass avocado. You can recognise a Hass avocado by its pebbly dark green skin.
