Soy Sauce: Tread Lightly

We all can get a bit carried away when it comes to soy sauce on sushi, but it is important to remember that soy sauce is used as a complement to the fish. Simply dip a small corner of the fish, not the rice, into the soy sauce. If you have a complicated roll, or you just can’t handle this maneuver with the chopsticks, go ahead and use your hands. This is how sushi was traditionally eaten anyways.

Wasabi!

You’re probably familiar with the green paste served alongside sushi called wasabi. If you’re unfamiliar, this stuff can burn like hell when you eat too much. So, if you put too much on your sushi and experience the burn, stop breathing through your mouth and rapidly breathe through your nose. This will provide almost immediate relief.

Ginger is not meant to be eaten in the same bite as sushi. it is meant for cleansing your palate in between different fish.
