I love fish, I really do. Getting good quality fish isn’t necessarily cheap, but when you do, you can do what ever you want to with it. You can even eat it raw. I love sushi as well, and sashimi can also be a hit. Here’s my take on it, inspired by my mother, but modified a bit.
- Raw fish (I usually prefer salmon, but any fish that is rich in flavour, and preferably a bit fatty as well will do)(Cod is nice)(As is trout)(And prawns)(Mmm prawns)
- Salt soy sauce
- Lemon and/or lime juice OR Wasabi (japanese horse radish, sold in tubes. It’s green and very strong)
First, make the dressing, mixing roughly equal parts of soy sauce and lemon and/or lime juice, or wasabi to taste if you want a slightly more “authentic” taste. (You can mix lemon juice and wasabi, but you’ll end up using much more of both, and not getting as good a result.) Thinly slice the fish into slices roughly measuring a square inch, and somewhere between a half and three quarters of a centimetre thick. Mix the dressing and the fish. You can serve this immediately, but if you want the taste to be a bit deeper, cover with plastic film and leave in the fridge for a while.
Serve with rice, salad or whatever else you want.
