💥 Nigiri vs. Sashimi 💥
Hello. This is Nozomi from Ten Sushi. Today let me tell you about the differences between nigiri and sashimi.
The main noticeable difference between nigiri and sashimi is that nigiri has rice and sashimi does not.
This is usually how I explain when someone asks me “what’s the difference?”
If anyone knows another way to say please let me know.
I think I explained almost everything you need to know about nigiri and sashimi.
They are mostly the same.
How to eat sushi without the rice breaking into pieces
Did you know you can eat sushi with your hands? You don’t need to use chopsticks.
There is a reason why!
When Japanese people started eating sushi, the size of sushi was 5 times bigger than what we have now. It was difficult to eat with chopsticks, so people decided to eat without chopsticks.
But if I don’t use chopsticks, how can I dip the sushi in soy sauce without the rice breaking into pieces?
It’s easy! You can dip into soy sauce fish side. Do not dip rice into the soy sauce.
One last thing do not separate rice and fish, it is considered bad manners to do so!
I hope you enjoy more sushi!!
