Facts You May Not Know About Sashimi: A Popular Japanese Delicacy, Bon Secour, Alabama

Sashimi is typically ordered as the first course of a meal and simply consists of thinly sliced fresh, raw fish. It is one of the most popular Japanese dishes enjoyed in countries around the world. Despite their differences, it’s not uncommon to hear people incorrectly refer to sushi and sashimi interchangeably. Whereas sashimi is often served raw with no other ingredients, sushi is prepared around a rice and vinegar combination and mixed with other ingredients that are sometimes cooked.

sashimiThe most common types of sashimi found on menus are salmon and tuna. However, it is possible for it to be made with meats such as yellowtail, shrimp, octopus, scallops, sea bass, abalone, sea urchin, and horse mackerel. It is typically served with wasabi, ginger, and soy sauce for some added zest, but these aren’t meant to distract the taste buds from experiencing the unique flavor of sashimi.  

In addition to being delicious, the Japanese delicacy also has nutritional benefits. It’s full of vitamins and other nutrients that are important for a healthy body. It is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which is vital in preventing heart disease, as well as protein, magnesium, vitamins B6 and B12, and phosphorous. While there are some concerns about eating raw fish, there is generally very low risk when it’s ordered from a reputable restaurant.
