You should be eating it light to dark
When you order sushi, you should eat the lighter colored items before the darker ones. The darker pieces of fish have a stronger flavor that will leave an aftertaste. The only exception to this rule is when you enjoy the chef's choice. You should then eat each piece in the order it is presented to you as the chef has designed the order best for your palate.
Flip it over
Next time you dine out for sushi, flip your nigiri over when you eat it. This way, the fish side touches your tongue so you will get the best flavor and texture of the fish.
