Alright class, welcome to Home Ec 101. It is time to learn the differences between Sushi, Shashimi, and Nigiri.
Sushi means rice and seaweed. If you have a dish where the main ingredients are rice and seaweed, then you are eating sushi. I've had egg sushi while in Japan and a lot of places that sell sushi in the US have vegetarian rolls. Also, unless the menu says otherwise, any fish in sushi is steamed cook and not raw.
Shashimi means raw fish. That's when you will get slices of raw fish either on a bed of flavored rice or placed on a decorative plate in a pretty way. In this case the fish is actually raw so i would only get sashimi from a place I really, really trusted.
Nigiri is fish on rice. The slice of fish will be placed on a finger-sized arc of rice and is eaten with your fingers. Techniquely, this is the only one of the three rolls that is eaten with hands. Also, unless the menu says other wise, the fish will be raw and not steamed.

Don't forget your homework on the differences between mixing and folding.
