    sushi made with raw fish

    Hello,

    - Is sushi made with raw fish?
    - Is sushi made of raw fish?

    I cannot decide which one to take. I think using 'with' is OK. What do you think?

    Thank you.

    I would use "with".

    Re: sushi made with raw fish

    'Sushi is made with raw fish.'── raw fish is one of the ingredients.
    'Sushi is made of raw fish.'── raw fish is the main ingredient.
    Are they right or wrong?

    Re: sushi made with raw fish

    'Sushi is made of raw fish' would mean that raw fish is the only ingredient – clearly incorrect.

    Re: sushi made with raw fish

    'Sushi is made partly of raw fish.'
    Is it acceptable?

    Sushi may contain no raw fish at all.

    Exactly. I buy a delicious vegetarian sushi plate from my local deli.
