ST. LOUIS (KPLR) - Chi Sushi owner Jae Yoon and Chef Tom Viduka visit Fox 2 News to discuss the edible art form, share a couple of recipes, as well as these tips to enjoy your sushi.

  1. Chopsticks are not necessary! Sushi originated as a street food, and it`s still acceptable to eat it with your fingers if you prefer.
  2. Don’t nibble. Sushi chefs carefully choose the proportions of fish, rice, and wasabi in each piece – you can eat it in one bite. That is why sushi  is so popular at parties and events.
  3. Don’t put pickled ginger on your sushi. Instead, use it to cleanse your palate by eating bites of ginger to prepare your taste buds for what’s next.
  4. Use wasabi wisely. Smear it directly onto the fish or roll. Don’t dilute wasabi’s kick by mixing it into your soy sauce.
  5. To appreciate the flavors of each type of fish, start with mild, light-colored varieties before progressing to fattier, bolder-tasting dark fish.
