I eat sushi once a week and my wife is half-Jappanese so I really thought I had this whole thing all figured out. Apparently there are a few things I've been doing that, according to some of the biggest sushi chefs in the world, are completely wrong.
* Do not put wasabi directly into your soy sauce. The sushi chef has already placed the proper amount of wasabi for the fish in nigiri.
* Do dip your nigiri into soy sauce fish-side down — otherwise, the rice may fall apart.
* Do eat nigiri in one bite to enjoy the perfect harmony of fish, rice, and wasabi. If you bite halfway, the balance will be lost.
* Do eat with fingers. Chopsticks are okay, but you have to be careful with how you use them. You’re not going to appreciate the temperature or the texture if you don’t use your hands.
