As a premise, there is no fixed order that one must follow when eating sushi.
You can eat the pieces that you like in whichever order you prefer, and there is nothing wrong about it.

There is an ideal order to eat sushi

However, there is an eating order which is considered to be ideal.

And then had some tuna, the representative of red fleshed fish!

After eating richly-flavored pieces, we drank some tea to reset the taste in our mouths.
