Different rolls of sushi
What's The Difference Between Maki And Uramaki Sushi?
Two predominant types of sushi are maki and uramaki. Both sushi rolls contain the same ingredients, but there is one subtle difference as to how they are assembled.
Maki contains fish, vegetables, and rice that's rolled into a sheet of seaweed (aka nori). Uramaki features the same ingredients, but the rice is on the outside instead of seaweed.
The majority of the sushi on a U.S. restaurant's menu often feature uramaki-style sushi, which can contain toppings like soft-shell crab, cucumber, avocado, and daikon sprouts.
