Sushi is a Japanese dish consisting of small balls or rolls of vinegar-flavored cold cooked rice served with a garnish of raw fish, vegetables, or egg.
While many people assume that Sushi is also raw fish, it is actually vinegar rice mixed with several other ingredients.
A California roll or California maki is a makizushi sushi roll usually rolled inside-out, containing cucumber, crab or imitation crab, and avocado.
The first difference is that sashimi is thinly sliced raw meat, typically fish served without rice. Typically, sashimi is made with some type of salmon or tuna. Translated, Sushi means "it is sour," which typically has to do with the vinegar rice.
