You like sushi but don’t know about sashimi yet? Or do you already love sashimi? Don’t miss out on this unique recipe for salmon sashimi with mustard sauce. It is a fusion recipe between Japanese and French cuisine.
Salmon Sashimi? What’s sashimi?
Sashimi is a classic of Japanese cuisine. It is simply thin slices of raw fish. Unlike sushi, sashimi is not served on rice but is eaten alone and sometimes with rice but on the side. Sashimi is usually served with soy sauce and wasabi.
In the salmon sashimi recipe that follows, I replaced the spicy wasabi with Dijon mustard. Dijon mustard goes very well with the smoothness of raw salmon.
Which fish to choose for the salmon sashimi?
Be careful when preparing sushi or sashimi. It is imperative to choose a very fresh fish. It is recommended that you ask your local supplier for information and to ask for fish that is suitable for raw consumption.
If you don’t like salmon or you want to vary this sashimi recipe, you can completely replace salmon with red tuna. Red tuna, like salmon, is a high-fat fish and goes very well with mustard sauce.
