- Slice fish as thinly as possible across the grain to keep it tender, like you would a steak.
Notes, tips, and variations edit
- Since the fish is raw, it is important that it be as fresh as possible.
- Some people avoid freshwater fish (e.g. freshwater eel, salmon) entirely for sashimi, because they may contain parasites that do not live in saltwater.
- Eel's blood contains a toxin, and eel needs to be cooked to break down the toxin.
