Sushi and sashimi: tantalizing Japanese dishes to make from home
Posted: Sep 29 2014
If you haven’t already incorporated sashimi and sushi into your family’s dinnertime repertoire, you don’t know what you’re missing. Sashimi offers an affordable, healthy meal rich in mouth-watering flavor, perfect for garnishing with garden-fresh vegetables. In addition to its culinary draw, serving a sashimi dinner to your family means treating them to a colorful, flavorful experience that can vary each time you serve it, depending on the sashimi fish you choose.
Best of all, sashimi served with a bowl of rice is one of the easiest and tastiest meals you can make.
FishForSushi.com makes selecting fresh, colorful sashimi almost effortless, and much less expensive than you would pay in a restaurant. If you’ve never tried this before, some great sashimi choices to start with are:
Using a very sharp knife, slice your sashimi into pieces about 3½” long x 1½ wide and arrange on a platter or as Chirashi- a bowl of sushi rice topped with a variety of sashimi. Nigiri sushi is another great option to add to your sashimi platter. Nigiri sushi is basically small fingers of rice topped with a filet of sashimi or cooked shellfish and wasabi.
Serve your family this mouth-watering meal with sides that include a good soy sauce, wasabi, ginger and garlic.
Finally, sashimi can be eaten with the fingers or chopsticks. Teaching your children to use chopsticks is half the fun of serving them sashimi. Try Googling instructions for using chopsticks if you haven’t exactly mastered them yourself—it’s much easier than you might think.
Sushi and sashimi dishes are nutritious, affordable and delectable. They’re easy to prepare, flexible (according to availability and your family’s preferences), and easy to adapt to family members with food allergies.
Including the whole family in your sashimi dinner preparation exposes children to new cultural delicacies, and teaches them the craft of mixing flavors and textures for a delightful and different meal each time.
sashimi and sushi are still widely considered restaurant fare, but they don’t have to be.
