It is better to not grasp too strongly when squeezing the rice since it will become soggy. It is also recommended to eat with salt and lime for the white-fleshed fish for a more refreshing taste, and a little soy sauce for the lean fish.

This was my first time making sushi and I did not know that making the shari was this difficult. I was amazed at how the sushi chefs accomplish such difficult task in an instant. I have come to love Japanese foods even more from this experience. I want to tell all my friends that I was able to make sushi all by myself. It was a really good experience for me. Thank you!
It was my first time making nigiri sushi. I did not know that I needed to grasp the rice with my fingers instead of the palm of my hands. A lot of rice got stuck onto my hands, but it was worth the fun! When I was tasting the sushi, the rice spread into my mouth and it was an exquisite taste.
