Posted: Nov 20 2017

Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Everyone loves Thanksgiving! It’s a time to gather with friends and loved ones, and eat!

Most families have well-established Thanksgiving traditions, not the least of which is the menu. Some folks aren’t keen on trying something new for Thanksgiving, while some change it up every year! Sometimes, change is good.

Imagine your Thanksgiving table bedecked with festive and colorful sushi, sashimi, and seafood dishes! Healthy, delicious, easy-as-pie, and the leftovers are wonderful. Added bonus: it’s a very healthy alternative to the typical high carb, fat-laden traditional Thanksgiving dinners of yore, filled with vegetables, omega-3-rich seafood such as salmon and tuna, and natural vitamins and nutrients.  No worries about finding fresh, mouthwatering seafood, sushi, and sashimi in November. FishForSushi can deliver it to your door, superfrozen to lock in all the flavor and vibrant color it had at first-catch.  This year, dazzle them with a great seafood and sushi spread, a vibrant feast for the eyes as well as the palate. Sound like a lot of work? (It isn’t). Here are some meal ideas that will make it look like you slaved for hours (you didn’t). Save your energy for spending quality time with loved ones.

Succulent salmon

Gobble Gobble!

Who doesn’t absolutely love salmon? Baked salmon is easy to prepare and a huge hit at the dinner table! Incredibly flaky, juicy, and flavorful.  A quick, no-fuss way to cook salmon is oven roasting. Even when you’re cooking for a group, it’s easy to fit several fillets or salmon steaks in a baking dish or sheet. Simply season the salmon with a little salt and pepper, and place skin-side down in the lightly greased baking dish or sheet pan; then bake in the oven at 400 degrees F for about 12 to 15 minutes. No need to flip the fish.

Wild Chilean Sea Bass
Family, fun, football and don’t forget the feast!

This fresh buttery fish arrives at your door already marinated in miso, for incredible flavor.

Preparation is easy-peasy. Place the fish in a shallow glass or ceramic baking dish.  Bake fish, uncovered, for 15 minutes; then sprinkle with parsley and continue to bake for 5 more minutes (or until the thickest part of the fish flakes easily). Then Drizzle remaining pan juices over fish and garnish with lemon wedges. You can also broil it in the oven for 7 to 9 minutes until it effortlessly flakes.

Fatty Tuna Belly, a Japanese delicacy. (Simpler and less fattening than pumpkin pie).  Simply rinse in cold water and defrost in the refrigerator for 6-7 hours, slice and delight!

Peppercorn Smoked Yellowfin Tuna Tataki

Seared yellowfish isn’t just for summer. When it’s smoked with peppercorn, it delivers a fresh-off-the-grill flavor that just seems right for a Thanksgiving feast. Ours comes pre-sliced with the smoked black peppercorn already infused. Each bite brings all the elements of the smoked peppercorn and the buttery texture of the yellowfin together, A simple, delectable feast to serve to family and guests, and easy to incorporate into salads.

How to prepare

The wine has been poured and the table is set

Ngiri is a type of Japanese sushi in which you drape a small rice pillow with a piece of tuna, salmon or octopus sashimi.  Ngiri might be a good option for Thanksgiving, since it’s a bit easier than making sushi rolls, unless you want to make sushi rolls! Thanksgiving just isn’t Thanksgiving without one or the other.

Sides and Garnishes
A Thanksgiving dinner you won’t soon forget

Carrot sticks, sliced avocado, sliced cucumber, pickled ginger, wasabi, sliced radishes, sliced eggplant, salmon caviar, wasabi, and soy sauce at the ready.Pat yourself on the back! You’re a pioneer, breaking away from convention and starting healthy new holiday traditions! You’re a trendsetter, a taste-maker, a maverick! And your family and friends will love the impressive spread you’ve laid out for them. Don’t forget the chopsticks!
