 What is sashimi?

Sashimi in Japanese means thinly sliced pieces of raw meat. When people think of sashimi, they usually refer to thinly sliced pieces of fish eaten with soy sauce at sushi restaurants.  Sashimi can also be thinly sliced pieces of beef as well. There are specialty dishes such as beef sashimi where you can eat the beef raw.

In Japan, there are sushi restaurants that serve chicken sashimi that is seared on the outside but raw on the inside. We DO NOT recommend trying chicken sashimi at home. Sushi chefs in Japan use the best raised chickens to prevent salmonella in chicken sashimi.  

If you want to eat sashimi, you can order our fresh sushi grade fish at Sashimi Market. All of our fish such as our Atlantic Salmon, Ahi Tuna, Hamachi Fish, Bluefin Tuna, King Salmon, Fatty Tuna is sushi grade and can be eaten raw. 

Our fresh sushi grade fish is ready for you to slice and eat. Our sushi grade fish is cut into a block form and is deboned for you. There should not be any bones left in the fish but once in a while during busy days there may be a few bones left. Please be careful of leftover bones.


How to Eat Sashimi

Just like steak, cut our sushi grade fish against the grain into thin rectangular slices about 3/8 in thick. Cutting against the grain makes the fish more delicious, buttery, and easier to eat.

Taste our amazing Atlantic Salmon or Ahi Tuna as salmon and tuna sashimi. We guarantee it'll blow your mind. Dip the sashimi into ponzu citrus soy sauce and eat it with a bowl of sushi rice. Or make a sashimi salad with lemon vinaigrette.

If you want a fast, simple way to eat sushi, we recommend making sushi tacos. Take a pack of roasted seaweed, add a little bit rice in between the roasted seaweed, and dip your sashimi into soy sauce and place the fish on top of the rice. Now you have a roasted seaweed sushi taco that's fresh, delicious, and super tasty!  

We only serve the best sushi chef quality fish at Sashimi Market. Taste Sashimi Market. Taste Happiness.
