Nigiri and other types of sushi have distinct differences

- The fish is presented on an ideally shaped block of rice, with a thinly sliced piece.
- To complement the other types, it is served with soy sauce or wasabi sauce.
- This type of sushi is different because it does not include a “maki”, nor is it wrapped in seaweed.
- Tops usually contain fish such as mackerel, salmon, yellowfin, or octopus.
- You can eat it with chopsticks, or you can eat it with your hands like any other type of sushi.
- Nigiri is not likely to include toppings such as avocado, spicy mayo, or cream cheese. The main focus of Nigiri is the fish.
