Now I am going to show you how to cut the fish for sushi. There is two different kinds of sushi basically, one is Nigiri-sushi and the other one is Maki-sushi.

I am going to show you how to cut for Nigiri-sushi. Coming in here and I want to cut a little thinner than Sashimi, so I am cutting from my left. Cut at a little angle and guide with my left hand, pull. The shape you are looking for is kind of rectangular but it does not have to be a perfect rectangle. Sometimes I do a diamond looking, so when you place it on the rice, there is more movement to it.

And the thickness is about quarter inch. Those are the tips on how to cut the fish for sushi.
