Moreover, the artistic and aesthetic presentation of these pieces of raw fish, the size of a bite, is a great art and the result of a long apprenticeship in Japanese cooking schools. And to cut the fish into more or less thin slices, the experts use a sashimi knife with a very sharp blade that is 30 cm long and 2.5 cm wide.

In Japan and Korea, a spectacular variation of sashimi is even practiced: ikizukuri, which consists of slicing a fish just out of the aquarium and serving it alive with a beating heart. If the criterion of the freshness of the fish is essential for making sashimi which is traditionally eaten using chopsticks with wasabi paste and soy sauce.


Often this sashimi is served as a starter, accompanied by finely grated raw vegetables such as white cabbage, celery, or white turnip, and the recommended drinks to accompany it are green tea, sake, or Japanese beer.

Indeed, it is exclusively the latter that constitutes the raw material for this choice dish.
