What is the least fishy sushi?
Salmon. Salmon is an extremely popular fish for both sashimi and nigiri partly because it doesn’t have the strong ” fishy ” taste that many people fear. Easily distinguished by its peachy orange color, salmon’s smooth flavor makes it a safe, non -threatening choice for sushi beginners.
Is it rude to eat sushi with your fingers?
It is OK to eat nigiri-zushi ( sushi) with your hands. Sashimi is only to be eaten with your chopsticks. Pick up the nigiri-zushi and dip the fish (neta) into your shoyu, not the rice (which will soak up too much shoyu). Gari (ginger) is considered a palate cleanser and eaten between bites or different types of sushi.
