The Flavor of Latvia (83/100)

American expats are fond of poking gentle fun at the predominance of dill in Latvian cuisine. It really is everywhere, even as the only seasoning in some dishes, such as Latvian classic "boiled potatoes with dill." But this may be the crowning achievement in dill deployment: Pre-made sushi for sale at the supermarket in little shrink-wrapped trays, featuring maki rolls coated with dill. I'm sure the Japanese are kicking themselves for not thinking of this first.

I'm always fascinated by how other cultures have taken sushi and created their own unique flavors. Although I'm not sure if I'm amused or offended by the Pearl Harbor susho roll.
