Many of us know to dip our sushi in neta-first, but did you know that there’s also a correct way to insert it into your mouth!? The reason we dip our sushi on the neta-side only isn’t just to keep the rice from falling apart; what we’re doing here is prepping the topping, i.e. the most important part of the sushi, so it only stands to reason that this is the bit we want to introduce to our taste buds first.
So after applying that dab of sauce, keep your fish on the underside of the rice and pop it in you mouth (in one go, remember). Prepare for a taste explosion and quite possibly a nod of approval from your chef on being one of the few people out there who actually knows how to eat sushi properly.
