Fore-Blessings: Sushi

Say the fore-blessing borei minei mezonot over sushi, since the rice is primary. If you are eating the sushi for the salmon (or other ingredient) in the middle, say she'hakol, too (or whatever blessing is correct for that important ingredient).
Note To say fore-blessings over sushi:
  • Say borei minei mezonot, then take a bite of rice (which may have nori, etc., on it).
  • Say she'hakol, then take a bite of fish (which may have rice, avocado, etc., stuck to it).
