Lessons 3 and 4: Preparing Sashimi

Being surrounded by the sea, Japan has always been blessed with a wealth of seafood. As a result, raw fish has always played a central role in Japanese cuisine. The two most common types of raw fish dishes are sushi and sashimi. Lessons 3 and 4 focus on the fundamentals of sashimi preparation, that is, sliced raw fish.

In the Japanese kitchen, along with soups, sashimi is regarded as the most fundamental and important category of Japanese cuisine. The proper preparation of sashimi is a delicate art, using nothing more than precise cutting techniques to maximize flavor and freshness.
