In the last couple of years I have learnt to really appreciate Japanese food. Even more so after our trip to Japan last year, where I learnt that Japanese food is so much more than what the majority of people who live abroad think it is. I have shared many Japanese recipes in the past months, but I hadn’t shared a sashimi recipe yet! Don’t ask me why, because I LOVE sashimi and I had a lot of it in Japan! My favourite sashimi are fatty tuna and salmon based. As it is really hard to find sushi/sashimi grade fatty tuna here, I decided to start with this Salmon Sashimi with Ponzu. What is Ponzu? It is a sauce that contains a mix of ponzu (citrus), soy sauce, mirin and dashi. It is generally used as a dipping sauce or as a dressing. You can serve this Salmon Sashimi with plain soy sauce as well, but I love the citrus kick that the ponzu sauce adds to each bite! Enjoy!
Always buy sushi/sashimi grade salmon to eat raw and please be careful. Consuming raw fish may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially if you have a medical condition. Do so at your own risk.
Ask your fishmonger to slice the salmon for better results.
