- Jun 20, 2002Could be. It kind of fits the description of the pickled rice/fish combo pressed into a mold that I mentioned in my post.

One possible type of sushi which may have existed in late period,
battera-zushi, named after the portuguese word for ship (bateira), was the
same pickled fish (mackeral or funa, carp) which was pressed in a three part
mold with vinegared rice, removed and eaten. It was the tail, which was
still intact and sticking out of one end of the mold, which gave the
appearance of the image of a galleon. (circa 1569). This is a traditional
speculation and I can find no firm dates to justify this.
