Oshi (Pressed) Sushi 10 recipes

'Oshi sushi' (literally 'pressed sushi') is made by pressing sushi rice and a topping of your choice in a wooden box called an 'oshibako' to create perfect rectangles. It originates from the Kansai region in central Japan and is said to be the prototype of Edo-style nigiri sushi. Varying by geography, oshi sushi tends to reflect the produce and lifestyles of each locale.
