The increasing popularity of sushi around the world has resulted in variations typically found in the Western world, but rarely in East Asian Countries (a notable exception to this is the use of salmon which was introduced by the Norwegians in the early 1980s). Such creations to suit the Western palate were initially fueled by the invention of the California roll. A wide variety of popular rolls has evolved since. Though the menu names of dishes often vary by restaurant, some examples may include:
Alaska roll, British Columbia roll, California roll, Dynamite roll, Hawaiian roll, Mango roll, Michigan roll, Philadelphia roll, Rainbow roll, Seattle roll and Spider roll.
Ingredients can include, but not be limited to:
A variant of raw salmon on the inside, or layered on the outside. Grilled or barbecued salmon skin, sweet sauce, sometimes with roe. Also sometimes referred to as salmon skin rolls outside of British Columbia, Canada. The California roll consists of avocado, kani kama (imitation crab/crab stick) (also can contain real crab in 'premium' varieties), cucumber and tobiko, often made uramaki (with rice on the outside, nori on the inside) Other favorites are yellowtail (Hamachi) and/or prawn tempura, and fillings such as bean sprouts, carrots, chili and spicy mayonnaise.
