Nagiri: More adventurous sushi eaters might be interested in nigiri. A simple description of nigiri would be: fish on rice. Nigiri is usually a single type of fish on a bed of rice and will usually have a small bit of wasabi between the fish and rice layers. While this is a simple dish to eat, it allows a sushi lover to experience more of the flavor of the fish, rather than any additional ingredients that may hide the flavor of the fish. Nigiri is often served in small quantities-usually one, two, or three pieces at a time and ranges in price from as low as $2.50 for a single piece, to $10 for more pieces.
