Marks & Spencer Sushi…..
Marks & Spencer Sushi pack was the latest one I have tried and to be honest I think it is the best out of the lot. Compared to Tesco Sushi, the M&S looks a lot more professional as it is made into circular pieces whereas the Tesco Sushi is squarer.There were several sizes available in M&S but I only wanted a lunch time substitute for a sandwich so opted for the £3 packet. In this packet you get 8 different pieces of sushi and I feel the price is good for what you are getting. The price in Tesco ranges from £1 to £5 but I think the price is about the same for a box this size.
The pieces of sushi inside are as follows:
1 Prawn Futomaki
2 Soya Edamame Maki
1 King Prawn Nigri
2 Red Pepper Maki
1 Lochmuir Smoked Salmon Nigri
1 Cucumber Maki with Soy Sauce
Pickled ginger and Wasabi.
All the sushi contains rice and the other roll type sushi has seaweed as the wrapping to hold the rice together. I have tried to make my own sushi but this was very unsuccessful as my rice was too hard and too fragranced with the liquids you need to add into them and I didn’t like my seaweed sheets, so it was complete disaster and I am only going to buy shop made sushi from now on.So to get back to this M&S sushi, I do think that it is far superior to the Tesco version because it looks a better quality and it even tastes a better quality. You get more soy sauce (that comes in a little bottle) with the M&S one and both the pickled ginger and wasabi are not wrapped individually and this makes them easier to eat. I must admit to not using wasabi though as this is just like a Japanese horseradish sauce and far too hot for me.
The way this sushi is made is very good and the pieces are really just bite sized pieces that pop into the mouth easily and without too much mess. I have gotten people from work to try sushi and they are now just as hooked as I am. At first it tastes a little salty but the flavours of the vegetables and fish really come through. I must say that I have only tried the sushi with the raw fish once and I don’t think I will try it again as I really didn’t like it. Most sushi from Morrison’s, Tesco or M&S is the no raw fish variety and this is the way I like it.All in all I do think this sushi packet from M&S is better than what I get at Tesco. It is harder for me to get to M&S to buy it as regularly as I like to and for that reason I will probably continue to buy is from Tesco. If I do go anywhere near M&S though I will certainly be buying it.
A 5 Star rating and a High Recommendation from me.I hope this has been of some help/interest to you.
