What is Oshizushi?
Oshizushi is better known as Box Sushi. A wooden mold called an oshibako is used to press sushi rice and cooked or cured ingredients into a block-shaped piece. The oshibako is first lined with the toppings (raw fish is never used; salmon, mackerel, and shrimp are popular). The toppings are then covered with sushi rice, and the lid of the mold is pressed down to compress all the ingredients. When the block of sushi is removed from the mold it is cut into pieces and served.
