This is for all you sushi lovers...or for those that want t give it a try!! I am a huge fan of sashimi, salmon being my favorite. Sashimi is thinly sliced, raw seafood. Many different kinds of fresh fish and seafood are served raw in Japanese Cuisine. It can be served plain or wrapped up in a sushi roll. I prefer it plain topped with a slice of avocado and wasabi or drizzles with Avocado Vinaigrette.
I had the hardest time years ago trying to force myself to try sushi, let alone sashimi! It is now a favorite and staple in my diet every week. I would only eat this at a quality sushi/Japanese restaurant or from Whole Foods. You can find sushi grade salmon and tuna sashimi in the seafood section of most Whole Foods. If it is fresh, it does not taste fishy at all!!! I actually think cooked salmon tastes more fishy than raw. Be sure to buy it the day you plan to eat it or close to the day.
If you like to use wasabi with your sushi, you can buy it powdered. It is typically found in the asian section and all you have to do is add a bit of water to the powder. This recipe doesn't call for it, but it is something I enjoy along side my avocado and sashimi.
If you haven't tried sashimi, now is the time!!! So easy to digest and full of good fats! This salad has so much flavor you probably won't even know it's raw fish!!!
