Between the California rolls and the spicy rolls and classic nigiri sushi, there are more options than ever. One of my favorite activities whenever I visit my parents is going to our local Japanese steakhouse and sitting at the sushi bar, gabbing with the expert chefs and devouring whatever raw fish concoction they put in front of me. Yum!

As much as I love sushi, though, there's a lot I didn't know about this beloved dish. For instance, do you know the proper way to use soy sauce with your sushi? Do you know when it became popular in the U.S.? So many things to learn!
