Sachie's Sashimi Plate

Difficulty: Easy 
Cooking time: 15 mins  
Serves: 3  


In Japan, we love to eat raw seafood – our term for this is ‘sashimi’. For a plate of sashimi, you will need sashimi- grade, very fresh raw fish. If you are unsure, befriend a keen fisherman, or simply ask the local fishmonger if their catch is fresh enough to eat as sashimi. Salmon, snapper, tarakihi, gurnard, John Dory and tuna are all lovely eaten raw.

100g fillet sashimi-grade Regal salmon, skin and bones removed

100g fillet sashimi-grade snapper, skin and bones removed

100g fillet sashimi-grade kingfish, skin and bones removed

1 tsp wasabi powder or

½ tsp wasabi paste

100g daikon, shredded sushi ginger, to serve

Soy sauce, to serve



Holding your sharp knife at a 90° angle to the chopping board, slice the salmon into small block shapes.

Holding your knife at a 45° angle and cutting against the grain, slice the snapper towards the tail

If using wasabi powder, add ½ tsp water to make paste.

Place daikon on a plate, add sashimi and wasabi paste, and serve with sushi ginger and soy sauce.
