Nonetheless, how do you cut sushi rolls?
Eventually, why does my sushi fall apart when I cut it? The most common reason most rolls fall apart is that they're overstuffed. Usually, the culprit is too much rice. ... Lay a ¼-inch-thick layer of rice on the nori. And don't forget to leave at least one inch of your nori sheet free of rice.
Similar, do you cut sushi against the grain?
Now that you have your blocks, you have to cut the fish into even thinner slices, which is about quarter of an inch, in a direction that is against the grain and at a thirty-degree angle. You should always pull your knife backward when slicing the fish.
