The tip is like a triangular shape. The piece is tender so it is not difficult to cut off. Next, you slice a layer off of the fish, it should be about an inch below where you sliced the tip off the fish. After that, you will have to remove the tendon from the fish. You should be able to see a tendon. It looks like a line running diagonally from the top of your fish down towards the skin. To remove it, slice the piece of fish in half lengthwise, cutting down near the skin, Avoiding cutting the skin since it contains tendons. To do that, pull the fish to one side and use your knife to separate the it from the tendon near the bottom. Also, you should remove the other half of the fish piece from the skin by holding your knife parallel to the skin. Slide the knife between the the tendon and the meat of the fish. Now for the two pieces of fish you have, you will cut the fish for a nigiri sushi. Get one of the fish pieces and slice the end of the piece so its at a 45-degree angle. Place your knife one-fourth inch away from the end of the piece and slice down at an angel. Continue to do this until you sliced up the whole piece. Do the same thing to the other piece of fish you have, This should take about twenty to thirty minutes. When you get done cutting the fish, at about the same time your rice should be done. Take out however much rice you need for the nigiris that you will make out the rice cooker onto a plate. Get a small portion of the rice and make it into an oval shape. The oval shape should have a height of three-fourth of an inch, width of three-fourth of an inch, and length of about two and a half inches.After you are done with making the oval shape, grab a piece of fish and put it right on top of the rice.
