Kinuach Between Meat and Fish

Q: [One may not eat meat and fish together (Shulchan Aruch YD 116:2) and Rema (116:3) recommends that one should separate between eating those items by eating and drinking some neutral food. This is known as kinuach and hadachah.] Restaurants that serve sushi and meat often have nothing on the table to eat between the sushi/fish and meat, and I’m wondering if rice can be used for the kinuach?

A: Yes, rice is perfectly suitable for kinuach between fish and meat, as long as the rice is itself free of fish and meat.
