Popular Western Sushi Rolls Quiz

Name That Sushi Roll!

My current cuisine du jour is sushi. It's lowfat, filling, and adorably bite-sized. I love it so much that one of my culinary resolutions is to learn how to make it.

I recently tested your knowledge of sushi vocabulary. Many of you did surprisingly well, so I thought I'd see how you fared when it comes to the ever-popular Western sushi rolls that dominate America's Japanese restaurants.

I'll show you a photograph of a roll, and you tell me what it's called. Ready for a visual feast? Get started!

I don't think I will ever get into eating sushi. When it comes to the sushi rolls, it looks like it taste so bad.

6/8 and I'm a vegetarian :) Some of the pictures were terrible, you couldn't even tell what what inside. I might be going to have sushi tonight, love veggie rolls. Ciaobella - The rice could be on the inside or out. What makes the California roll is the filling. I prefer inside out rolls myself, it's harder to chew the seaweed when it's on the outside.

God I loves me some sushi rolls. I skipped my usual dragon roll last week (or caterpillar apparently?) and ordered the spider roll. I never expected to like the soft shell crab so much!

california does NOT look like that. the rice is on the outside for the california... maybe it varies from region to region.

Those pictures weren't the most clear.... :-/ Weffie - ginger is beige or pink, depending on whether coloring is added to it. It's natural color would be the beige.

There are two versions of ginger: the light white/beige you see above and pink, Just depends on where you dine.

sushi naming conventions may vary from place to place. luckily, they are always so tasty! i don't recall salmon skin rolls being called another name but they are not always on the menu

Why is the ginger beige? (#5 & 7) Or is it something else?
