"Age sushi is a deep-fried seaweed roll that you can fill with fish, meat, vegetables or eggs, according to your taste. The sushi rolls are dredged in flour, eggs, and breadcrumbs, giving them a crispy exterior when fried. This sushi is served with sweet and salty nitsume sauce, which is made from sweet rice wine, soy sauce, and sugar."
