found out a fun fact about sushi today 😁 yes, i am still turning japanese 😂

#tdil the incredible way that salmon sushi was invented in japan 🇯🇵

so, like me, you probably just assumes that salmon sushi was just a thing that happened naturally many many moons ago 🤷🏻‍♂️

you’d be wrong! 🙈 until the 1970s, it wasn’t a thing – in fact, japan had never imported a single fish for sushi … instead using only fish caught in and around japan (they had the best fisheries in the world)

salmon sushi actually came about because norway wanted to export more fish to japan to make all that $$ 😏 it was all done through something called “project japan” 🍣

it wasn’t as easy as you might think … the japanese weren’t really down with eating raw salmon on sushi because they were worried about parasites that the creatures pick up in the wild #fairpoint

eventually (after 15 years) it started to become a thing 👍🏻 and trade with japan grew from around nok 500million in the 80s to nok 1.8billion in 1991 😱

and now it’s a thing 🙌🏻 what a glorious thing it is too 😍 who doesn’t love a bit of sashimi salmon goodness? 🍣🍣

and that’s us 😘

laters 👍🏻 #tdil
